ACT 55 - #HANDSTANDUP AGAINST SKIN CANCER
Today’s challenge comes from @PerfectBar -- In honor of their father and #SkinCancerAwareness Month, we’re helping them raise $20k for public education, early detection programs, medical seminars and groundbreaking research. Since we’re avid fans of the outdoors and sun in general, we love that Perfect Bar’s donating $1 for every handstand posted.
All you have to do is post a picture and tag @perfectbarand #handstandup. PLUS they’re giving away a free box of bars every day. Thanks for helping us stand up to cancer and change the world. #100StartsWith1(photo cred: @atenyoga)

ACT 54 – BREW YOUR OWN KOMBUCHA
By now, you’ve probably had kombucha or at least heard about it. But, if you haven’t, it’s a fermented tea drink from Northern China chock full of probiotics, enzymes, and b-vitamins and delicious effervescence. Traditionally drank as a digestive, kombucha’s been around for centuries and it’s just as easy to make now as it was back in the day. You just need a starter (we recommend @KombuchaBK for your scoby and a more in-depth How To Kit) and this DIY from@TheEcologyCenter (link in our profile). Once you’ve brewed, try flavoring it with a flew splashes of Amazon Energy or ¼ tsp of Sambazon’s freeze dried açai powder.
Happy brewing! #100StartsWith1
ACT 53 - CLEAN UP YOUR BODY CARE.
Conventional body care is stocked with so many funky chemicals we don’t even know where to start, but there’s hope! You skin absorbs both the good and the bad, which means — just like your diet — you want to make the most whole and pure choices you can when it comes to skin care. We recommend @PangeaOrganics because they’re organic, as fair trade as possible, and they use whole plant ingredients (v. derived isolates) because nature’s a genius.
Try their Japanese Matcha Tea with Açai + Goji Berry Face Mask to start. The antioxidants are gonna make you glow!
Now go to your bathroom and see what you can toss. Think about reading the the ingredients just like you'd read them in the kitchen. #100StartsWith1
ACT 52 - SHARE. Use @Yerdle.
Who doesn’t like trading and swapping stuff with their friends? We think it's the best way to lower our individual impact on the world and Yerdle helps us do it. Yerdle's a people-powered store that flips the traditional system of shopping on its head. You post a picture of your unused stuff and then shop for free using Yerdle dollars.
It’s a win-win because you get to take advantage of things already rather than wasting resources making something new.
Do you use Yerdle? We’re going to post some stuff and would love to swap!
Want some ideas for other sharing apps? Try City Bike, ZipCar, AirBnb. Got any other ideas? Let us know so we can share! #100StartsWith1
ACT 51 - MAKE SOME ART.
Today’s challenge comes from @GOODhqand the amazing artist Saelee Oh. They want you to make some art because it’s good for your brain AND because creativity will change the world.
Click the link in our profile for the full run down and a special drawing from Saelee just for you! (*cough* *cough* new phone background? *cough*) Ps - How's this carved açai seed?

ACT 50 - MAKE A VISION BOARD
YEWW! We made it halfway, Tribe! What a ride!
Today we’re looking back while also looking forward and challenging you to Make a Vision Board (…or corner of your room, or section of your wall). It’s so necessary to take a second and appreciate where you’ve come from so you can make plans for where you’re going.
Follow the link in our profile to learn about the #science behind why vision boards work, then get at it and start making your own. How? Add one thing for what you want in: health, home, a vacation, something you’re saving for, work, a hobby, and something that makes you happy.
Big thanks to @feelingjoy for the inspiration today! Now show us your #shelfies! #100StartsWith1
ACT #49 – DIY - CHOOSE LOCAL FLOWERS & MAKE YOUR OWN BOUQUET.
Coming into late spring and early summer, there are lots of brunches, BBQs, dinner parties and just-because get togethers with family and friends.
Cause it's way more fun to show up with something to make everything brighter, today's challenge is to NOT just grab a bouquet from store. Instead, follow the link below for The Ecology Cente's DIY on choosing local flowers.
After all, we keep our food local, why not our flowers, too? Show us your bouquet! #100StartsWith1
(ps - we're almost halfway!)
ACT 48 - VOTE WITH YOUR DOLLAR AND FOLLOW THE FROG
It’s no secret we love the Amazon and everything we do is meant to help protect it. That’s why today’s challenge comes from our brothers in arms against deforestation, The Rainforest Alliance . Together, we’re challenging you to #VoteWithYourDollar by choosing products with the Rainforest Alliance’s Green Frog Seal.
That little frog means ingredients are sourced from farms or forestry businesses that meet strict standards to conserve precious ecosystems and protect the well-being of farmers and forest communities.
ACT 47 – TAKE A LEAP
Professional football player Kenny Stills is a huge fan of superfoods, healthy living and taking yourself to the edge. That’s why we asked him to come up with today's challenge for you! He wants you to change your world by Taking a Leap. #boom
HOW TO DO IT: Write a list of five things that scare you. Maybe it’s switching jobs, signing up for a marathon…asking someone out wink emoticon Pick one and face it head on. If you don’t, you’ll definitely never know.
So take it from a pro and Take a Leap. Legend has it, if Kenny hadn’t taken a dare to try his first açai bowl, he never would’ve found purple love.
What’s your leap?! #100StartsWith1
