challenge

Find out how small actions can make a difference in the world. Take the Sunlight Living Challenge with your family and together we can create a brighter future for our children.

We all want to live more sustainably. We know the world is changing and we want to do our bit by saving water, cutting down on food waste and reducing our carbon footprint. But when we think about the size of the planet and the challenges to sustainability, we can feel powerless to make a difference.

But it just takes one action at a time, one household at a time to change the planet for the better. Together, with the right tools, we have the power not only to improve our daily lives but to improve the world around us too.

Sustainable living is possible because every single small change in our day-to-day lives can effect global change and build a brighter future.

That’s why Project Sunlight has launched the Sunlight Living Challenge, to help families live more sustainably at home, by inspiring them to reduce water and household waste, improve wellbeing and empower communities to help create a brighter future for our children.

Families across five countries - Brazil, India, Indonesia, the UK and the USA - will be taking part in a series of simple challenges around specific areas of sustainable living:

  • Brazil: families will participate in in-home challenges that focus on hygiene, waste reduction and recycling (to follow the challenges in Brazil visit: futuromelhor.unilever.com.br).

  • India: with a focus on water reduction, ten participating Mumbai families will compete to see who can reduce their water consumption the most (to follow the challenges in India, starting on May 21, visit: brightfuture.hul.co.in).

  • Indonesia: across five cities, 50 families, including ten Unilever employee families, will participate in three different challenges; from sorting rubbish to applying more hygienic behaviour (e.g. hand washing and teeth brushing, etc.) at home and empowering communities to implement sustainable living habits (to follow the challenges in Indonesia, starting on May 19, visit: www.brightfuture.unilever.co.id).

  • UK: people will be asked to join the ‘Live Better Challenge’, a partnership with The Guardian which launched in March (to follow the challenges in the UK visit: www.theguardian.com/live-better ).

  • USA: families will be encouraged to take on challenges, which will address reducing food and general household waste (to follow the challenges in the US visit: www.brightfuture.unilever.us).
