This week we are going to focus on helping our environment. According to Scott toilet paper Company, we throw out enough toilet paper tubes to fill the empire state building twice each year. That can easily be solved merely by throwing your toilet paper tubes in the recycling instead of the trash. Another big one is using reusable water bottles. We throw away so many plastic water bottles every year and that can be solved by getting a reusable water bottle and using that; plus you will save a lot of money. Try to buy items in bottles that are made from recycled materials to help save on energy that is used to make the bottles. I have used DoSomething.org before and am doing so again because they are helping others to make a big change in their community. They have just started the Green Your School Campaign that focuses on ways to not only green your school but also your home and other things. Check out the project ideas page to find easy ways for you to start, or continue, helping our environment. If you have a child in school or are a student yourself think about signing your school up for the campaign and not only help the environment but also have the chance to win some awesome scholarships and prizes. So when you are shopping this week or heading out to the gym, think twice before you leave bags at home that could be reused or go to buy a plastic water bottle. Happy being Green!
Until next week,
