This blog was started, and is intended to illustrate that environmentalism happens through small acts, is not difficult, and that it does not always have to be some big life changing event that forces you to live in the tree tops with no electricity. All that being said, one of my small acts was to start this blog to gain some friends to help me save the world.

New Green Challenge: Just the one for me

So here is today's challenge.  See if it is possible to use just one glass and just one plate (per person)throughout the course of a day.  Rinse off as needed but try to avoid using a lot of water to clean, as that would defy the purpose, at least until the end of the day.  This is a pretty easy challenge.  And honestly at the end of it you have saved yourself doing a bunch of dishes.  And reducing dishes saves water and it also saves you the cost of water and whatever dish soap you may use.  So once again it is a win win for all.  Yay for winning.
Also I thought it was worth mentioning that I was out to eat the other day, courtesy of my mother,  and the restaurant had reusable take home containers,  How cool is that.  Don't worry I had my own, the only reason I know is because someone else at the table needed a container.  But I was still impressed and excited.  So lets hope this movement (because that is what it is folks, a movement) keeps spreading.
Thanks bunches.


  1. Love it! I always use only one glass a day and only give London one sippy... still trying to train Billy though... :) And reusable takeaway containers...fabulous!

  2. Allie that is awesome, and tell Billy to get on the band wagon man. Yay for reducing our impact and yay to us for trying to save the world. Keep up the good work.
