Welcome to Change The World Wednesday! If you're new here, please check out the idea behind these challenges and the "rules" HERE.
Last week we challenged ourselves to fix and/or maintain our cars because a properly running vehicle is one that minimizes it's environmental impact. Our Honor Society took the challenge to heart ... take a look:
Art Ist at One A Day took our car out for a little TLC.
Mrs. Green joined in and wrote Change The World Wednesday - Week 8. As I browsed her site, I saw that she wrote another article which I think fits in nicely: Debate about public transport versus private. And she sent an update from the previous challenge on buying recycled products here: Update on Change The World Wednesday.
Sinclair was here and wrote Change The World Wednesday.
Argentum Vulgaris joined us and wrote Change The World Wednesday.
Ange from Signed by Ange participated.
Better Man from Becoming the best person I can be stopped by.
Barry dropped in. He's from An Explorer's View of Life.
Kobus1, from Look What I Found, gave her bike a little TLC. Now that's green transportation!
Kate joined us and wrote Drive Smart = save gas = save planet.
Great job everyone! I've Stumbled and Tweeted your articles. And, I hope you'll click on the Stumble button at the end of this post and tweet about this challenge using the hashtag #ctww ... it will help us spread the word.
Okay ... on to a brand new challenge. This one came from our bloggy friend, Ange, who writes a wonderful blog called Signed by Ange. In a note she said "A tip for next week (one that is close to my heart): ZERO food wastage! Get into creative cooking with left overs and only buying what we need to feed the family. Often we have more in the pantry than we realize! And for Mums - that doesn't mean we have to eat the kids' leftovers off their plates ;-)".
So let's take her up on that challenge:
This week, don't waste any food. Buy only what is needed for your family. If you cook more than what's necessary, get creative with left-overs. If left-overs don't appeal to your family, cook only enough for one meal. Don't toss out any food ... and don't let it spoil in the refrigerator. Zero Food Waste!
If you're already a zero food waste chef, then share some of your more creative meals in a post.
Thanks, Ange, for this challenge ... I think it's going to be fun!
That's it for this week. And remember ...
WE'RE CHANGING THE WORLD ... ONE CHALLENGE AT A TIME!
