Individual environmental actions only take a few seconds. Together, we can make a huge impact with simple everyday actions. The National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) invites you to learn about the environment and learn how simple everyday environmental actions add up to a huge impact.

Watch NEEF's Take a Second video and be inspired, learn from EPA how a few seconds add up to a huge impact, and share how you are taking a few seconds for the environment to help inspire others at TakeASec.org.

Share a short Vine or Instagram video by May 26 with the #takeasec hashtag showing how you are taking a few seconds to conserve water to win an Apple MacBook, an Apple iPad, or a $300 REI gift card! Hurry, the deadline is right around the corner!

Check out this example from NEEF:
