It takes 30 days to break a habit, but how about to change the world? PGC aims for both. Through 30 days of environmentally themed challenges, PGC transforms mindset, habits and practices from conventional to conscious. We go further to challenge and arm them with tools to become active advocates for good in their community. This creates the ripple effect across society that helps change the world!
