Last week's challenge was great! If your comments and posts were any indication, we, as a group, were able to significantly reduce the number of plastic bags being used. Congratulations to all of you!!
As I wandered around last week, reading your articles on plastic bags, I developed a new appreciation for your efforts. Talking about environmental issues, on non-environmental blogs, isn't always easy and, at times, generates some less than positive feedback. So ... thank you for taking a stand!
Here are the people who made this week's Honor Society ... and by the way ... I hope I haven't missed anyone. So many of you have posted about this and while I try to visit everyone ... it's tough to keep up with this growing group. So ... if I have missed your post, please accept my apologies ... and let me know ... I'll be sure to go back and read it and I'll include you next week. Okay, here we go:

Fabulous list, right? If you have an extra minute, be sure to click on some of their links ... there are some great posts on plastic bags.
Okay ... on to this week's challenge. This challenge was suggested by one of our bloggy friends, Yanic from Adventures into green:
For one full day this week, eat only local foods. No tropical fruits from across the world ... no veggies that traveled hundreds of miles to get to your table ... only locally grown foods (this includes meats, dairy products, etc., if you eat them).
OR, if you're already eating only local foods full time ... and may I say congratulations to that ... post one of your favorite "local food" recipes on your blog.
For the challenge "rules", click HERE!
Happy "local" eating, everyone!
