Welcome All Stewards of North Dakota!

As North Dakotans, we are proud of our clean air, pristine lands and wide-open spaces. We all have a role in keeping our state as clean as possible.

The North Dakota Stewards Initiative is a voluntary initiative of the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality that encourages North Dakotans to make small changes to help us all benefit from a cleaner, more sustainable environment.

Congratulations to all participants in the 2020 contest. We were impressed with everyone's savings!

This year's contest will run from September 1 - 15, 2021. You are still welcome to use the log forms to help track activities that reduce waste and save energy outside the contest period. The logs were created for a full month so that you can use the daily logs year-round.

Looking to do more? We created a worksheet for K-12 educators and/or families to use as a guide to reduce food waste.



We have also created a worksheet for high school students. The worksheet focuses on the overall environmental costs that occur throughout the life cycle of a pair of jeans.



North Dakota residents can participate in a survey to become official North Dakota Stewards and receive North Dakota Steward certificates. To participate visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/26WNZ7C
