Take the Pledge
Choose at least one action that you can commit to doing from April to September. If you feel ambitious, try two or three actions. There are a variety of options to choose from (see the chart below), so find the perfect ones that match your lifestyle.
Want to take smaller steps? Consider the Acorn level options (they are great for kids too!). Want more of a challenge? Try the Oak level options. Want something in between? The Sapling level is for you.
