Are You Up To The Challenge?

Friday, September 17, 2010

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Aladdin. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do the Reuse ChallengeAs my family and I have worked toward being more "green," we've eliminated most of the disposable containers - including water bottles.

But the key word here is "most."

So that's why I'm excited that I'm joining in the Do The Reuse Challenge, a 30 day commitment to not to use those disposable containers - which includes disposable paper cups, water bottles, or food containers. 

Think you can't do without that styrofoam coffee cup?  Think again!  The Challenge is sponsored by Aladdin, makers of quality reusable products.

Now that we've covered that pesky little problem, no more excuses - right?

Glad you're on board!

To keep us hyped during this month long commitment, Aladdin will be featuring 9 families on their blog that working toward the same goal.

Still need a little more motivation?  If you're like me, frugalness is high on your list.  So check these facts out:

  • It costs about $165 a year to make drip coffee at home versus $636 to buy drip coffee at your local café.
  • Nine dollars will generally cover a decent lunch out. If you buy rather than pack a lunch five days a week, you shell out about $2,350 a year.     
But, seriously, it's not all about the money.  It's about eliminating waste and be kinder to our planet.

I hope you'll join me while my family works towards 30 days.  And also be sure to stay updated on the Challenge's official families with Aladdin on Facebook.
