Shreya's Actions


Learn the Truth About Expiration Dates

Reduced Food Waste

I will spend at least 15 minutes learning how to differentiate between sell by, use by, and best by dates.

One-Time Action


Keep Track of Wasted Food

Reduced Food Waste

I will keep a daily log of food I throw away during Drawdown Ecochallenge, either because it went bad before I ate it, I put too much on my plate, or it was scraps from food preparation.


Action Track: Social Justice

Learn about Local Indigenous Practices

Indigenous Peoples' Forest Tenure

I will spend at least 15 minutes learning how local indigenous tribes are caring for the land by attending a training, workshop, or presentation.

One-Time Action

Buildings and Cities

Go for a Daily Walk

Walkable Cities

I will take a walk for 20 minutes each day and take note of the infrastructure that makes walking more or less enjoyable, accessible, and possible.


Electricity Generation

Lights Off!

I will turn off all lights when not in use, and I will utilize sunlight to its maximum extent whenever possible.



Reduce Animal Products

Plant-Rich Diets

I will enjoy 3 meatless or vegan meal(s) each day of the challenge.

    We need to get 1092 points within three days in order to reach our goal! We got this!

    Only 97 points away from 15th place! I think we're gonna have to increase our goals next time :)

  • Shreya Karnam 6/29/2020 10:46 AM
    Wow, we're already 98 points away from 15th place! It's literally been a few hours since we were in 17th place, wow!! 

  • Shreya Karnam 6/29/2020 7:53 AM
    Only 11 points away from 16th!!!!! WE GOT THIS.

  • Shreya Karnam 6/24/2020 5:49 PM
    We are literally 99 points away from 19th place!!! We can do this.

  • Shreya Karnam 6/21/2020 5:46 AM
    Hey guys! We have already passed our goal (and it hasn't even been one full day!!!) so we should step up our game a little. Since our previous goal was 20th place with at least 6800 points, for next Saturday let's shoot for 19th place with at least 7000 points. Keep it up! :)

  • Shreya Karnam 6/13/2020 4:19 PM
    Great job everyone -- we beat our goal once again! We are in 22nd place. Let's try to reach 21st place with at least 6000 points by next Saturday. Keep going! :)

  • Shreya Karnam 6/06/2020 6:11 AM
    Hey guys! We beat our goal from last week -- we are not in 33rd place but in 30th place! We are now officially on the first page of ranked teams! Woohoo! Let's try to stay on the first page until next Saturday, and if possible, jump up to 28th place. Keep going! :)

  • Shreya Karnam 5/31/2020 5:43 AM
    We are in 34th place! The team behind us is catching up, though. Let's try and beat them to 33rd place by next Saturday.
