Green Deer Challenge Toolkit
A little friendly rivalry goes a long way
There’s nothing like a little friendly rivalry to get your Green Deer team working even harder, and having more fun doing it. Who could you challenge? A business rival? A group in your community? An opposing sports team? It could even be as simple as encouraging your neighbours to take part in a 15 minute challenge. The possibilities are endless – the key is to have fun with them.
What are the stakes?
Some common challenges are to see who can pick up the most bags of garbage, log the most time cleaning, or have the most people take part. You choose! And, to make it a little more interesting, you might want to consider extra motivating factors: losers bring coffee or a picnic lunch for the winners, or the losers wear garbage bag shirts for a day – get creative.
We suggest choosing a location that’s meaningful to you and to the team you’re challenging. Perhaps an area close to your work, a street you live on, or a park you love to use. Your glow of accomplishment will last longer if it’s an area you see regularly.
What’s in it for you?
By participating in the Green Deer program, you will be part of creating a cleaner, healthier community that all citizens of Red Deer will be proud to call home.
