Last week our challenge was to join a world-wide event called Blog Action Day. This year's theme was water and blogs all over the world talked about it. Our Honor Society did their part, too! Let's check in with them:
EcoGrrl gave us this beautiful post. It made me think about what we stand to lose if we don't make some changes.
Kat Magendie didn't post specifically about water but did give our challenge a lovely "shout out" HERE.
Argentum Vulgaris wrote a very thought-provoking post ... read it HERE. He brings up some excellent points about how we are robbing Mother Nature. He also offers some water-saving ideas. Here's a hint ... think about your freezer. Thanks, AV!
Renee, who found us through the Green Blog Hop, dropped in. Thanks, Renee! By the way, check out the Blog Hop in the left side bar and get introduced to a whole bunch of eco-friendly blogs.
In a post called "Water is a Gift", Priti.Lisa shares some wonderful water-saving ideas. Want a hint? Think pasta! Thanks, Lisa!
Busy Working Mama stopped in. She left a comment about composting at work ... at her desk. I'm fascinated by that idea and hope she'll share more about those efforts.
Kris wrote a wonderful post HERE. In it she shares a link to "Five Facts About Water You Might Not Know". Number 2 in the list stopped me in my tracks. Thanks, Kris!
Art gave us Wishful Thinking, his own special spin on Water. I love the title ... and thought that his post conveyed so much. What's your interpretation of title and picture?
Ramona, The Paper Princess, stopped in. Nice to see you, Ramona!
Ann has written several posts on the death of a river. In THIS POST, she passionately writes about conditions in her childhood home. It is a very sad reminder of what happens when commercial interests interfere with nature. Thanks, Ann!
Be sure to stop by and read Mrs. Green's post HERE. It is so brilliant, and simple, it'll make you slap your head and wonder why you didn't think of it. Mrs. Green also shared a post she did on toothbrushes (read it HERE). Wow ... who knew so many earth-friendly options were available ... including a wooden toothbrush. Thanks, Mrs. Green!
Rewinn wrote a wonderful post entitled "Water Should Be No Headache". You might be surprised with this post ... it's an angle I hadn't thought of. Great job, Rewinn!
Cheryl, aka Healing Woman, found us through the Change The World Wednesday post of one of our honorees, Priti.Lisa. WhooHoo - the green word is spreading. Thanks for coming by, Cheryl, and for your warm, supportive comments.
Sarah found us through the Friday Green Blog Hop. Thanks for coming by Sarah ... hope to see you again.
Some wonderful Twitter friends tweeted about our challenge using the hashtag #CTWW. If you're on twitter, be sure to visit these folks and follow them:
Thanks to everyone who took part! I've Stumbled and Tweeted your posts.
Before we get started with this week's challenge, I have a favor to ask ... coming up with new and unusual green challenges is getting tough. So, I need your help! If you can think of a new activity for us, please let me know. Or, if you have a particular area that you are struggling with, pass that along and we'll try to turn it into a challenge ... and maybe we'll all learn something.
Okay ... ready for something new? This week we're going to save some paper. Ready? Here you go:
This week, narrow the margins on any printing you do. This simple act will save paper ... save trees ... and help reduce CO2 levels. Imagine ... this simple act could help reverse global warming. Wow!
If you've already taken this action or don't typically print things out, please write a post on all the ways in which you save paper.
Are you up for this challenge? I know that you are!!
WE'RE CHANGING THE WORLD ... ONE CHALLENGE AT A TIME!
