Earth Week Challenge – Day 1


Daily Home Activities for prizes & fun!


Day 1 Begins Today:  Go Paperless

This Wednesday April 22nd marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day.  50 years! 

So let’s come together to help the planet – all from the comfort of home with the Earth Week Challenge.

Each day, I’ll share one simple activity that any of us can do – right now, today – to make the planet be healthier!

To make it fun and worthwhile, I’ve got a couple of things up my sleeve.  First off, I am hosting this challenge in conjunction with Shaklee, so that we can lock arms with thousands of others doing the same challenges along with us. As the FISRT company to be carbon neutral in the U.S., Shaklee clearly walks the walk on sustainability like few other companies truly do.  And by sharing on social media with others, each of us can be part of the planting of THOUSANDS of  trees as part of Shaklee’s Earth Day commitment! Just think of the massive difference this whole big group of people can make – and with Shaklee’s help – we surely will.

Win Prizes Too!

Also, to make it fun, I’m giving away samples of the most earth-friendly, safe, concentrated, and powerful cleaning solution available to everyone who posts and tags Greener Cleaner LIVING to let me know they’ve completed the day’s challenge.

At the end of the week, one lucky winner will be selected from the group to win a GET CLEAN KIT – full of amazing cleaning products for every room in the house and worth the equivalent of over $3,000 in conventional cleaner costs.

So are YOU ready??





Some how to’s:

1. Bring reusable bags if venturing out to food store.

2. Pull out those cloth napkins from the back of the closet 🙃.

3. Skip paper towels today and use dish towels & cleaning rags/cloths.

4. Give the printer a break and save documents to PDF’s.

5. If need hand written notes, reuse an envelope or the back side of old printouts.


While paper is a smaller part of every home’s carbon footprint, using less of it and choosing recycled paper products is one way we at home can be mindful of using our natural resources sustainably.


So get to it.
