The Ding Dong Challenge started a few months ago when 15 influencers embarked on a remarkable green journey. During their trips, they discovered and shared inspiring and innovative sustainable initiatives across five European countries.

Throughout the journey, influencers invited their followers to take part in green challenges. Challenges that revealed how easy it is to incorporate small yet effective green actions into our everyday lives.

Check out our green challenges and their trips, and be inspired to set off on your green journey!
