The Ethical Living Challenge (ELC)


Ethical Living Challenge Banner

The Ethical Living Challenge (ELC) is about learning how to live more responsibly. Our purchases and actions often have shocking effects around the world – they can fuel slavery, keep people in poverty, deny workers their rights, and destroy the environment. Ethical living is about ensuring your day-to-day decisions don’t contribute to these things. ELC aims to create a generation of ethical leaders who are aware of the issues and know how to make the right choices. It’s not necessarily about radically changing your habits – it’s about knowing how to make change step by step.

How it works

Early Living Challenge ImageThe 2015 ELC will take place from May 1st – 21st. Each morning for these 21 days, an e-mail will be sent to you. It will have a different theme each day – everything from chocolate to fashion to travel. You’ll learn a bit about the topic, then you’ll be given a daily challenge to do which might be writing a letter to a politician, calculating your slavery footprint or talking to your favourite café about Fairtrade. Each of these things will build you up as a leader, giving you the tools you need to continue creating change after the challenge finishes. It’s up to you how much time you dedicate to the challenge and how you’ll make a difference. You also have the option of applying to be a regional ambassador – more about this on our FAQs page.

You also have the option of applying to be a regional ambassador, and there will be competitions and product giveaways throughout the 21 days. A new website will up be soon, but for the meantime Like the Ethical Living Challenge Facebook page to stay updated!

The Ethical Living Challenge is sponsored by Ethical Switch.
