What is a JouleBug Challenge?

Think of it as a sustainability competition, just for your community. We’ve harnessed the motivational power of rivalries and goal-setting to create measurable change for your community and the planet.

Competitive or Goals

Competing for the top spot or working together to accomplish a goal achieves high motivation.

Team Options

Create teams with existing rivalries, let leaders recruit, or have everyone compete as individuals.

Targeted Action

Customize your challenge focus to fit your company’s initiatives.


Reward the top individuals and teams, or anyone who passes a threshold.

“Doing things every day as part of a Challenge for 9 days, really kind of ingrains it in your mind and makes it stick with you.”
