Green Cup Challenge — In early 2007 Choate participated in its first Green Cup Challenge and has been part of the program each year since then. The Green Cup Challenge is an interscholastic competition directed at reducing electrical consumption.

Hydro Cup — Capitalizing on the success of the Green Cup Challenge, Choate students launched the Hydro Cup. This is an annual inter-dorm competition to achieve the greatest savings in water usage for a period of three weeks. Educating on water conservation helps to reduce water usage during each competition and seems to have a lasting impact.
