Time to kick off the third challenge competition! This one is all about cleaning up - both at home and in our neighbourhoods.

Points are available for picking up litter or decluttering your home.

  • 1 point for a picture of any litter you picked up
  • 1 point for selling or recycling a valuable item you no longer need (with a photo)
  • 2 points for donating a valuable item you no longer need (with a photo)

Given that this is such a special environmental challenge, I'll give a solid 5 tons of CO2 offsets (worth €50) to the winner!

So, the vegetarian challenge ended yesterday. A big thanks to Laure, Henri, and Janet for participating! I picked up a couple of new recipes I'll definitely make more often in the future. 😊

My 29 points were enough to take the win, wiping another 2 tons off my historical carbon footprint. πŸ˜„πŸ†

The next competition will be about cleaning up the neighbourhood and decluttering our homes. See you there!

Hi there! It's time for our second competition πŸ˜„πŸ†

This one will be all about healthy and sustainable eating. Like last time, the winner will receive a personalized certificate for 2 tons of CO2 offsets via projects in impoverished communities.

Here are the rules:

=> 2 points for a healthy meal with 5 or more ingredients => 1 point for a healthy meal with fewer than 5 ingredients => 1 bonus point to both if you try a meal someone else posted (remember to tag them using the 'at' sign) => Points are halved if you use eggs, cheese, or fish => Zero points if you use meat or sugar => Include a photo and ingredient list to earn points => You can only post each unique recipe once

I'm looking forward to see what culinary marvels we discover over the next month!

And so we come to the end of the first push-up competition. With a grand total of 32 points, I walked away with the 2 tons of CO2 offsets. Alta actually did two more sessions than me, but she didn't post any funny photos, so that entertaining rule carried me to victory πŸ˜„πŸ†

The next competition will be about healthy meat-free meals. It's coming soon! Stay tuned…

Hi there!

Let's try something a little different… For the next couple of months, we'll keep the Active Challenge running while cycling through several other options as a second challenge. Each of these 1-month cyclic challenges come with a prize for the winner: I'll offset 2 tons of your carbon footprint (worth €20) and send you a nice certificate with your name on it (like the attached example).

First up: the good old push-up challenge. Here are the rules: => 1 point for each completed session => 1 bonus point for a photo of you lying flat on the floor directly after your completed push-ups => 1 more bonus point if the photo is in an interesting/funny location or setting πŸ˜„

The person with the most points on 11 June will get the certificate! And I'm also competing πŸ˜‰

Game on!
