More Details:

The Eco-Life Challenge is meant to guide and support your curiosity around living a life in harmony with the planet. These challenges will give you a taste of lifestyle habits to consider implementing into your daily routine to significantly reduce your environmental impact.

Even if you identify as an Eco-Life veteran, the Eco-Life Challenge is great way to brush up on your skills, maybe learn a new thing and bring more involvement and awareness into our community.


How does it work & How do I participate?

  • Please sign up after reading this page to participate in the challenge. You will receive a confirmation email that you are signed up for the challenge.

  • Beginning May 1, and over the course of 10 days, a challenge per day will be revealed at the start of each day. Because modifying our lives requires a little extra effort and thought, two extra days are being given for participants to complete the challenge course.

  • Complete each challenge and document your doings with a snapshot (required for grand prize entry) and caption to go the extra mile. Post your challenge to Instagram tagging @durhamoriginals and #EcoLifeChallenge2019 to win bonus giveaways from our participating businesses throughout the challenge. Separate rules apply to Instagram giveaways and are not affiliated with Instagram in any way.

  • The grand prize winner will be chosen at random from our sign up list. If you are chosen as a winner all documented challenges must be submitted to The Durham Originals within 24 hours or we will choose another winner. Posting on Instagram and tagging @durhamoriginals and #EcoLifeChallenge2019 gives you double entry to the grand prize!

  • If you choose to post challenges to Instagram, please be sure to include your user handle when you sign up so that we may find you. You will be prompted in the form.

  • Anyone may join the challenge at any point during the event, and are eligible to win the grand prize as long as they can complete the challenge by May 12, 2019.

  • All are invited to participate in the challenge, and we encourage all to do so! Unfortunately, we cannot grant prizes to those outside of NC. Prize winners must be available to pick up their prizes in Durham, NC.
