Hi Everyone! Happy "Change The World Wednesday".
One of the goals of these weekly challenges is to get a lot of people trying the same "green" activity during the same week. So, everyone is asked to spread the word. For most of us that means blogging about it and perhaps telling our friends and family. For one of our bloggy friends, however, it means creating a new blogcatalog group and working tirelessly to bring newcomers to the "fold". TC of Live Smart started a Change The World Group on blogcatalog. He's already signed up a bunch of people who, hopefully, will be joining us in our weekly efforts.
But that's not all that TC has done. Realizing that linking to a blog helps to raise that blog's ranking and increase traffic, he took our list of participants ... our "Honor Society" ... and re-posted it on his blog. So, not only did participants get featured here and their articles get stumbled ... they also got featured on TC's blog.
Our weekly challenges are quickly becoming a "social network" ... so not only are we doing a great thing for the earth ... we're promoting ourselves and each other. A huge thanks goes out to TC and his great efforts. His article is featured in this week's Honor Society so ... be sure to check it out. And, stop by the new group!
Alright ... without further ado, our Honor Society:

Thanks to everyone who participated and to those who offered us cleaning recipes.
Okay ... are you ready for a new challenge? This one combines a couple of suggestions made by amybyrd21 (aka waylandcook) at The Wayland Springs Cook. Here you go:
This week, turn your trash bin into the smallest container in the house by starting a compost bin and/or a recycle bin.
Or, if you're already a composter and recycler, write a post about it. Include information on what works for you and what doesn't, tips on how to be successful at it, and perhaps why it's preferable over sending stuff to a landfill.
Remember ... write an article about this challenge (and let me know that you have) and the article will get stumbled. Participate in any way (and again, let me know) and you'll be included in the Honor Society ... and who knows where that will lead. If you are a Twitterer (or is that Tweeter), tweet about it using the tag #changetheworldwed.
On your mark ... get set ... GO!!
We're changing the world ... one challenge at a time!
