This week's challenge was suggested by two people ... Judi from Living Green & Natural (a Delphi Forum) and Sinclair at Sharing Our Gifts. I think it's a great idea ... and, because I'm sure that there is always a need, there won't be two levels to this challenge. Here we go:
Put on your walking shoes because this week we're going to walk ... not just idle walking ... we're going to clean as we go. Yep, this week, please go for a walk ... at least once ... and pick up litter as you go. If you're feeling ambitious, go every day. Once you've got your bag of litter, recycle what can be recycled before tossing the rest in the trash bin.
Isn't that a great challenge? Not only will we get some exercise and breathe in some fresh, fall air ... we'll be cleaning up trash as we go. We can all agree that litter is an eye-sore ... but if you're wondering why litter is bad for the environment, read about it HERE.
Before we take a look at our Honor Society, I'd like to invite everyone to send in suggestions for future challenges. The only requirements are that they be environmental and something everyone can do (sorry, a challenge to buy a hybrid car, while great if one can do it, won't work for Change The World Wednesday).
Don't forget ... next week's challenge will be to participate in Blog Action Day 2009 which happens on October 15th. Click HERE for information and registration (another way to get your site noticed) and then ... start writing that post.
Okay ... are you ready for our Honor Society? As always ... there were some wonderful articles. Here they are:
