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!

You are welcome to use the log forms to help track activities that reduce waste and save energy. 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
