On the backside of Monday

Today was a great day and I’m going to assume Tuesday will behave. I’ve got a ton of blind faith that it will hold off on any bombs, bad news, overall yucky stuff. We all need a good Tuesday.

 

So, Earth Day is coming up. What am I doing about it? I’ve got a lot of options! I found this challenge on Lori’s blog

GREEN WEEK CHALLENGES:

  1. Wash clothes with cold water 1 pt
  2. Drink a green smoothie 1 pt
  3. Eat a vegetarian or vegan meal 1 pt
  4. Use cloth napkins 1 pt
  5. Make and use your own cleaning products (Recipes here!) 2 pts
  6. Use a canvas, or reusable, grocery bag 1 pt
  7. Plant a tree/herb/vegetable (indoors or out) 2 pts
  8. Shop at your local farmers market or buy only local produce for a day 1 pt
  9. Shop at your local farmers market/buy local for the next week 2 pts
  10. Take all batteries, old computers, DVD players, or other electronics to an electronics recycling center (keep hazardous substances out of the landfill) 2 pts
  11. Start a compost 2 pts
  12. Clean out your pantry and donate unopened non-perishables to a food bank 2 pts
  13. Walk, bike or take public transportation to work for the ENTIRE week 2 pts
  14. Carpool to work/store/gym 1 pt
  15. Make an Earth inspired meal using only whole foods- whole grains, fresh veggies and/or fruits, nuts, seeds 1 pt
  16. Get in touch with the Earth- try a yoga class, go for a walk without distractions such as your Ipod, meditate 1 pt
  17. Donate your time to a soup kitchen (good karma!) 2 pts
  18. Bring a reusable coffee cup on your next cafe run 1 pt
  19. Hang laundry to dry 1 pt

 

I was surprised to see how many things I currently do! I have a few in mind that I want to try. But don’t hold your breath on the hanging laundry thing. It’s not going to happen anytime soon 😀

 

Check out dinner!
