Ask the EnviroChallengers

During the pandemic, many questions may arise about Climate Change, Environmental and Social Justice, and how the City of Tacoma is planning a future of sustainability. 


The EnviroChallenger team is here to field your questions and gather information so you can make informed choices and decisions about keeping our community environmentally sustainable.


By watching our videos, produced by Gator and New EnviroChallenger Kate, you can learn about a range of topics from composting, to where does it all go when you flush, to how to prepare for the rainy season and the importance of planting trees. Also, you might see a farting cow! Submit questions for the team via envirochallenger@cityoftacoma.org.





EnviroChallenge At Home

 60+ At-Home EnviroChallenger Lessons!

In response to school closures due to COVID-19, the EnviroChallengers released an "EnviroChallenge of the Day" each weekday until the end of the school year to support student learning.


The challenges align with state standards, can be tailored for different ages, and, in typical EnviroChallenger fashion, entail a lot of fun!

The EnviroShorts video series gives you a closer look into several topics that the EnviroChallengers teach. These short videos on trash, food and yard waste, recycling, hazardous waste, wastewater and a visit to the Tacoma Recovery & Transfer Center demonstrate that nothing is truly wasted.
