Inspired by the Australian-founded initiative, our Plastic Free Ecochallenge is a 31-day, global challenge to reduce and refuse single-use plastics. During this time of COVID-19, we invite you to take action and create plastic-free habits with us while we prioritize public health and safety as much as possible!

Throughout the Ecochallenge, share your progress, success, and reflections with fellow Ecochallengers, all while earning points for completed actions. The combination of collective inspiration, camaraderie, and friendly competition makes change a little easier - and a lot more fun. After all, progress is social!

Become a Sponsor! Plastic Free Ecochallenge is made possible by a network of North American zoos and aquariums. If you are a zoo or aquarium, you can engage your community in measurable positive actions and grow our collective impact by becoming a sponsor. Sign up here!
