It's Wednesday and that means ... another "Change The World Wednesday" challenge! If you're new to this site you might want to click HERE to read the "rules" and a little about how we got started with this weekly event.
I really enjoyed last week's challenge. It was a week of reducing stuff and thinking about others. What could be better! I was in good company, too ... our Honor Society:

By the way ... everyone who wrote a "Change the World" article this week got a review at StumbleUpon.
Before I share this week's challenge with you, I had a thought (oh no, not again). I've recently joined Twitter ... and I know that many of you also belong. So what if we all Twittered (or is that Tweeted) about Change The World Wednesdays? Perhaps we could reach a lot of people and increase our positive impact. What do you think? If you decide to tweet about it, include the tag: #changetheworldwed. That will make the tweet available to searches and will start a trend.
Okay ... on to this week's challenge. My bloggy friend, Elizabeth Barrette from Gaiatribe, suggested this challenge. I love it and hope you will too:
Make a craft featuring reused/repurposed materials.
If you often do crafts with reused/repurposed materials, teach other people how to do so. Write a set of instructions and/or create a photo-essay showing the steps of a craft project, and post it to your blog.
Doesn't that sound like fun? It should get our creative juices flowing and get us thinking about how we can reuse/repurpose items which would normally be tossed out. Brilliant!
Last, but certainly not least, I'd like to send you over to visit my bloggy friend, Thomas. He writes a wonderful blog called Renewables At Home and is starting a motivational series which we'll be linking to every week. He hopes to help everyone find solutions to the challenges we all face when adopting a green lifestyle. This week's article is called Does Every Little Bit Really Help?
That does it for this week ... thanks, everyone! And remember:
We're changing the world ... one challenge at a time!
