The North Dakota Stewards Initiative Begins September 1!
The North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality (NDDEQ) is pleased to announce the kickoff of the ND Stewards Initiative. 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.
For the month of September, the NDDEQ is encouraging residents to track activities that reduce waste and save energy. These include activities such as walking instead of driving, recycling or composting instead of throwing waste in the trash, using reusable bags instead of paper or plastic bags and carpooling. Let us know how you are doing by posting on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #NDStewards. At the end of the month, the NDDEQ will calculate how these activities helped save energy and money, how much waste was kept out of landfills and how much vehicle emissions were reduced. Our results will be reported back here on the North Dakota Stewards Initiative page.
Participants can use the calendar below to help track savings throughout the month. At the end of the month, enter your total savings at the "Final Eco Log tabulation form" link. We will calculate the total savings and announce the results of North Dakota’s hard-working and eco-conscious stewards. Keep North Dakota Clean, Inc. will provide awards to the top five North Dakota participants who save the most throughout the month of September.
