Looking after the Earth doesn’t need to feel like a chore. We should feel proud to nurture our planet, because we all have a vested interest in seeing it flourish. Caring should feel like second nature. We learned that it takes 66 days to form a new habit. 66 days of adopting a new behavior for it to become your new normal. Welcome to 66 Days and Counting. A habit-building revolution on a mission to help the country become more planet-aware and mindful each day.
We get it—66 days sounds like a lot. So, we’ve tried to find ways to make it easy and fun for you to get involved. So we created a 66 Days Calendar that you can download here, to help you record your 66-day journey. Use our tips, attend workshops and make up your own positive habits as you tick off each day for an instant, feel-good feeling.
Over the course of 66 days, we will be sharing tips and tricks on small things you can do each day to make a big difference in the world and in ourselves. We’ll be teaming up with some of our favorite faces from across the sustainability, eco-fashion, fitness, plant-based and mindfulness spaces who will lead virtual workshops in which they share their own personal journey to becoming more planet positive.
