Welcome to Change The World Wednesday! If you're new to our challenges, click HERE to read all about them.
This week's challenge comes from our friend, Amy, at The Wayland Springs Cook. Since this seems to be the time of year when a lot of people get their cars ready for winter ... it seemed like a perfect challenge. Here we go:
This week give your car a little TLC. Check tire pressures and make sure that they are at the manufacturer's recommended levels. Check the air filter and change it if necessary. Fix any oil and/or radiator leaks. Give your car a general "check up" ... a properly running car will minimize it's impact on the earth and it'll keep you safe.
Write a post about Eco-friendly transportation. Need a couple of ideas? Consider a post about alternatives to driving, or perhaps an article on how to minimize the environmental impact of using a car.
So what do you think? Is it doable?
How did you do on last week's challenge to buy recycled? As the challenge pointed out, there needs to be a "strong aftermarket for products made from recycled content". That idea was driven home to me when I visited my favorite computer recycling store and found that it had closed it's doors ... there just weren't enough people interested in buying "recycled". So I urge you to continue with that challenge and make it a point to choose recycled versions of everything whenever possible.
Let's take a look at this week's Honor Society:
