We know that everyone hopes to live green, but most of the time it's hard to know where to start and how to stay motivated. That's why we provide Weekly Challenges to help our users improve the Earth one shade at a time. Each challenge includes a description of the impact completing the challenge will have on animals and ecosystems around the world. We also provide stunning nature and wildlife videos and pictures to provide encouragement and motivation.
One Shade Greener strives to guide ordinary people to make small but impactful steps towards a healthier planet.
My interest in the environment is rooted in experiences from my childhood and has blossomed into a life passion for protecting the planet. My generation is the first to have childhood dominated by technology. Many of my classmates spent their free time playing video games or parked in front of a TV. I searched for friends who wanted to explore the outdoors. We climbed trees, swam in the river, and built forts in the woods. As I grew, so did my passion for the environment and knowledge of the threats it faces. I learned that change is needed to protect the environment and continue our way of life. My desire to make a difference and inspire others to do so as well motivated me to create One Shade Greener.
My exigence to join Oneshadegreener rises from my passion to not only help the environment by myself, but to encourage others to do the same. While serving as the Webmaster for Westlake High School’s National Honors Society, I spent a full semester learning HTML and CSS in order to build a website from scratch called WestlakeVolunteers. This website lists many volunteer organizations in Austin and encourages other students to volunteer and help the community by connecting them with an organization they are most interested in. This example expresses my dedication to helping our community and inspiring others to do the same. One Shade Greener is the perfect organization for me because I can provide solutions in order to help our environment while making an impact on a community that has inspired me to accomplish my great goals.
