Today is America Recycles Day, an effort to keep America beautiful! There is nothing like driving down a beautiful back road and seeing a littered ditch to distract you from the gorgeous view. Have you ever had that happen? It is annoying, especially since we can recycle and reuse so many items verses just trashing them. With today being a special day I would love it if you would join me by doing two things today.
1. Reuse and item in your home that you can later recycle. This will give you two uses for an item that youwould ordinarily throw away! So put on your thinking caps and if you need help see what I did last a few weeks back when I created a bank for my kids to help them learn how to save money and instead of buying something new I decided to get creative and reuse my White Cloud GreenEarth™ toilet tissue rolls. When the bank has seen its day, we’ll recycle it verses throwing it to the curb!
As a matter of fact you can still enter a creative entry into thefor a chance to win $1,000, until December 3, 2010. I’m amazed at the creative ways people are reusing the toilet tissues and paper towel rolls. Currently votes are being accepted on the entries and you can vote for more than one entry but only one vote per day! I’m not getting very many votes <insert sad face> but after all the cool entries I’ve seen, I understand why!
2. Do something nice for someone today and Give the Gift of Green! It is free and only takes a few seconds to pledge an act of green in a loved one or friend’s name. You can do this via Facebook or email and with today being America Recycles Day, why not pledge to save a little energy and opt to send an eCard, alert a friend of America Recycles Day, the fun contest and give them some information on ways to go green with One Million Acts of Green?
Let’s keep America clean for the animals, our future and future generations. After all, who likes taking a road trip and seeing trash? So get creative, start recycling and reusing and share this with your friends and encourage them to do the same. You might get lucky and win some money if you enter the Imagination Unrolled contest, an added bonus (get your coupon here for White Cloud GreenEarth™ products).
