The City of Hillsboro envisions a sustainable future, in which the City responsibly satisfies the needs of its residents, provides a healthy and satisfying work environment for its employees, and minimizes its impact on the physical environment of the community.
Join Our Hillsboro EcoChallenge Team to Help Celebrate Earth Month!
Are you up for taking shorter showers? Can you bring your reusable bags to the grocery store? Ready to try carpooling? Or going for a daily walk?
Small actions can add up to real change.
Research shows you can form new habits in as little as 21 days. Try something new for at least 14 days in a row and you're more likely to stick with it long-term.
In honor of Earth Month, we want you to join our Hillsboro team in the Hillsboro Community EcoChallenge from April 1-30.
You can connect with other EcoChallengers, earn points for meeting your daily goals, and help inspire others as we watch our collective impact add up. Participation is free and open to everyone!
The EcoChallenge is sponsored by the Northwest Earth Institute, and provides a platform for participants to reduce their impact on the planet by committing to and tracking one or more personal actions for the duration of the challenge.
