Let's just jump right into this week's challenge, shall we? Here we go:
Two of our bloggy friends, Amy Byrd of The Wayland Springs Cook and Marcy of Cooking Rut (both wonderful chefs), suggested this:
This week, for the entire week, refuse to use paper towels. Yep, 7 days ... no paper towels.
If you never use paper towels, please write a post about how you get by without them.
This sounds easy enough ... but I'm guessing that it's going to be a real challenge for some ... especially when many are in the habit of just reaching for that roll on the counter. I'm also guessing that you are totally up for it!
Speaking of "up for it", a whole group of people were up for last week's challenge to plant something. I hope you'll drop by and visit members of our Honor Society and see what they were busy doing last week:
Brian at The New Author

Sinclair at Nature With Me and at Sharing Our Gifts
Last week I totally missed Sinclair's efforts! Sinclair is one of our true honorees because she posts about our challenges each week on not one but two and often three blogs. She shares her thoughts and ideas ... and I recently noticed that she has included a special section on her sidebar for the honor society. She goes way beyond the call of duty to spread the green word and to give every participant a link.
So please accept my apology, Sinclair!
Let's pick up the posts we missed:
Nature With Me
Sharing Our Gifts
If I have missed your post, or another post that you've come across, please let me know ... I definitely want to give every participant a mention.
As a reminder ... I'm stumbling articles written about our challenges and I'll also twitter about them. And if you are a member of Twitter, I'd sure appreciate a tweet about our challenges using the hashtag #CTWW.
By the way, I received another wonderful suggestion for how we can improve these weekly challenges and make them easier for people to access. Elizabeth Barrette (who you'll find in the Honor Society above) offers this: "What I have done that's worth an extra mention is to list all the new CTWW posts at the end of my original feature post about this project. That's hugely useful because it's the page that keeps getting the most StumbleUpon hits. So other folks might consider creating a CTWW "landing page" on their blogs." Thanks, Elizabeth ... that's a great idea!
All of the challenges, past and present, as well as the rules, tips and ideas, can always be found by clicking the Change The World Wednesday banner in the sidebar.
That's it for this week!
WE'RE CHANGING THE WORLD ... ONE CHALLENGE AT A TIME!
