If you’re a student with a passion for sustainability and a desire to see your great idea for environmental change put into action, you just might have the opportunity through the Brita FilterForGood Eco-Challenge.
Brita wants to hear your idea for a green initiative to bring about environmental awareness and change on your campus. The company is giving away $1000 to 50 recipients this year for their contest which will end on November 19. Students and faculty members from kindergarten to college are eligible to apply. Simply state, in 150 words or less, how you would make your campus more sustainable, and if your idea is chosen, you’ll receive a $1,000 grant to help fund it into action.
Brita’s FilterForGood campaign began as an initiative to reduce the harmful waste created by plastic bottled water by encouraging people to drink filtered water out of a reusable bottle instead. Since then, Brita has been involved in many efforts to raise awareness and promote change within a host of other environmental issues. In previous years, the Eco-Challenge contest has proven itself a great way to motivate students on campus to be proactive in bringing about environmental change.
