EARTH WEEK CHALLENGE | APRIL 20 – 24
Daily Home Activities for prizes & fun!
Day 2: Fit All Your Waste in Mason Jar
Tomorrow marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. A half century of commemoration – but how much impact?
Let’s put this week of being home to good use to help the planet – all from the comfort of our own house – with the Earth Week Challenge.
Today’s activity is all about SMALL. But all these many small activities add up to BIG results to make the planet be healthier!
As a reminder, the objective is to make this fun. 😊 To that end, 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 company that created concentrated plant based cleaners over 50 years ago to help the environment while keeping us safe & healthy at home, Shaklee clearly walks the walk on sustainability like few other companies truly do. And by simply sharing our posts 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! Shaklee is on its way to planting 10 MILLION trees with our help. Just think of the massive difference this whole big group of people can make – and with Shaklee’s mission – we surely will.
To thank you for joining in, 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.
And here is the BIG prize! At the end of the week, one lucky winner will be selected from the GCL 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 Day 2 begins!
Day 2 – FIT ALL YOUR WASTE IN A MASON JAR
How much do you throw out everyday? Can you fit your garbage in a mason jar 👀??
Today is a great day to be mindful how much we throw out.
Try these tips as pictures above to avoid sending trash to the heap:
1. Wash out & reuse zip plastic storage bags.
2. Brew coffee without the K-cups. Lots of ways to! I love my pour-over.
3. Forego plastic water bottles. Filter your water at home (a lead-free filter is a must) and fill reusable bottle.
4. Switch to plant-based concentrated cleaners and you’ll keep THOUSANDS of bottles from the landfill.
Bonus: Finish of some salsa today? Save the wide-mouth jar for food storage.
Great thing about today’s challenge tips is you’ll save lots of money too! 💰 💰 💰
Post your pic of how you avoid waste today, and you will:
