WHAT is Cool Choices?
Cool Choices is an online game you play in teams.
It encourages you to take sustainable actions each day, at home and at work. You play daily, in teams, for 4 to 6 weeks, yet it only takes a few minutes a day.
It's a fun and social way to take sustainable actions and get credit for them. At the end of the game, the team and the individual with the most points win prizes! The goal is that all of us can change our behavior, one action at a time. When we do that over the course of weeks, those actions become habits.
Cool Choices makes sustainability fun! It turns actions into habits that help reduce cost and environmental impacts at home and at work.

HOW does a Cool Choices game work?
1. Players choose actions daily from the online card deck to play that inspire sustainable actions.
The mobile-friendly platform increases participation in existing initiatives or identifies leaders for new efforts *If playing outside the WSBC Member game, you can customize the deck to reinforce initiatives inside your organization.
2. Players earn points by taking actions (cool choices) that save money and reduce Environmental Impacts and/or GHG emissions.
In less than two minutes a day, participants play via phones or computer, cheer on their team and seeing how everyone’s actions add up to big impacts. It’s fun, social, and easy to play!
3. Cool Choices delivers increased engagement, decreased costs, AND insightful data.
At the end of each game, you receive an impact reports that details the financial and environmental savings your game produced. It also includes details on employee engagement in the game. We measure changes in behaviors as well as attitudes and beliefs.
Cool Choices users build on their momentum and continue to innovate and integrate change, even after the game play ends.
