Welcome to another Change the World Wednesday. If you're new to our weekly challenges, please click HERE to read all about the idea behind this weekly event and the (very loose) "rules".
So, how did you do with the repurposeful crafting challenge from last week? I thought it was a fun activity and encouraged us to give old items a new life. There were some very creative projects going on ... I hope you'll stop in and visit our "Honor Society" to see the unusual ideas they came up with. Speaking of "Honor Society", here they are:

Thanks to all who participated and remember, everyone who wrote an article about this challenge gets a thumbs up on StumbleUpon. If I missed anyone, please forgive me, and let me know ... we'll include your article next week.
Okay ... are you ready for this week's challenge? Here it is:
If you eat animal products, then for one full day eat only meatless meals ... go vegetarian. Dairy products & eggs are permissible ... but no other animal products.
Or, if you are vegetarian full time ... then, for one full day, eat only vegan meals. No animal products whatsoever.
And finally, if you are vegan, full time, write an article about why meatless meals are good for the planet and perhaps include your favorite recipe.
So what do you think? Are you up for this one? If you need a little help, there are a few vegan recipes posted on Reduce Footprints ... just use the search engine at the top left of the page and insert the words "vegan recipe". And, I'll be posting another one on Friday.
Remember ... part of the challenge is to spread the word and get as many people as possible involved. For more information on how to do that ... and a little motivation, stop by and see our friend, Thomas ... he's written a wonderful article entitled "How to green the world by running your mouth". He's got some great words of advice.
We're changing the world ... one challenge at a time!
