The *NO IMPACT EXPERIMENT*
is coming to Viroqua!
October 9-16 is No Impact Week
for Viroqua and La Crosse Communities
What is No Impact Week?
The No Impact Week
is a one-week carbon cleanse that allows participants to experience the difference lowering their impact can have on their quality of life, their community, and their planet! It’s about discovering how these lifestyle changes can increase personal fulfillment, health, happiness, and time with family and friends. Beginning Sunday, October 9th, participants will work through a series of eight daily challenges, from decreasing trash production to eating locally and sustainably.
When you register, you’ll receive a fun and engaging How-To Guide, which will walk you through each day’s challenge. Get your family and friends on board too!
How to participate?
It's easy, and you can choose how much to challenge yourself.
Each person registers and participates for free! Join the Viroqua and La Crosse communities in the Challenge: http://noimpactproject.org/experiment
. Look to the sidebar on the left for La Crosse + Viroqua. Scroll down the page to register. For the question “Which of the following best describes you?” click on Viroqua Community! All are welcome to join as a member of the Viroqua Community challenge, even if you do not live in the city of Viroqua proper. Share photos and experiences during No Impact Week on Facebook, the link is on the La Crosse + Viroqua registration page.
