Teens Turning Green is a student-led movement that is devoted to educating and engaging youth about environmentally sustainable and socially responsible choices for communities, schools and individuals. Teens Turning Green began in 2005 in the San Francisco Bay Area and now has a presence in elementary, middle and high schools, as well as universities and student organizations across the country and around the globe. The goal of Teens Turning Green is to inspire the transition from conventional to conscious living.
Project Green Challenge is a 30-day eco lifestyle challenge created by TTG in which students from across the country compete in simple daily challenges that demonstrate just how fun, accessible, and effective environmentally and socially responsible living can be. The submissions are judged and assigned points daily, and then twelve finalists are selected. The finalists are invited to join esteemed eco leaders for the Project Green Challenge 2012 Finals: Green University for an unprecedented weekend of sharing, inspiration, and social action platform development. The grand prizewinner will take home many prizes, such as a $5,000 Natracare Scholarship, $1,000 gift cards for eBay Green, The Container Store, and Whole Foods Market as well as an OrganicPedic by OMI Midori Twin Mattress, 1.5” Wooly, Wool Comforter, and Organic Cotton Pillow.
