The JustOne Campaign
Every small action we take or idea we have to protect our
environment protects the health of our communities, our families and ourselves.
Thank you to everyone who participated
in the 2013 JustOne Campaign – your actions
and ideas made a difference.
JustOne Project Wrap-Up
From April 22 – May 21, 2013, participants in the JustOne campaign came together to demonstrate
their commitment to health. Some shared the
individual actions they were taking to protect the health of the environment,
while others shared their ideas for creating a broader impact on the health of
the community. Whether they were sharing
small actions or big ideas, all participants shared their dedication to protecting
human health by protecting environmental health.
JustOne Action participants
from across the country shared over 500 eco-friendly actions they had taken
throughout the course of the month-long campaign, ranging from recycling to biking
to work to green purchasing and everything in between.
Twenty-seven ideas for ways to create an environmental
impact within the local community were shared during the course of the JustOne Idea campaign. Those with the top votes were considered by a
panel of judges from Inova, Siemens and Washington Gas, and one idea was
selected to receive $500 to help make it a reality.
The JustOne Idea
grand prize was awarded to the “Go-Green Art for All Ages” project. The goal of this project – held in
conjunction with the Reston Teen Center and Herndon ArtSpace – is to host a
series of intergenerational art classes using recycled and reused
supplies. Projects will include recycled
paper jewelry, artist trading cards, greeting cards to send to the troops and
plastic bag weaving projects. Through
this project, local older and younger citizens are teaming up to protect the
environment and spark creativity.
The following set of tools and resources was developed to help business partners and participants understand, promote and educate about the JustOne campaign.
