Go Green & Say NO to Plastic!

I told you I would have some ideas and a giveaway!  Meant to get this up yesterday but weather was a priority and I just didn’t get it finished!

Here’s the rub: TRY to reduce your NEW plastic purchases this month.  I said TRY!  This is going to be one of those things where we all have to take baby steps.  I know I will.  I still forget my reusable grocery sacks too often! Plus there are things that will always be packaged in plastic, and hopefully it is recyclable.  It’s that disposable plastic that is so regrettable and preventable.  And then there is the toxicity factor that I do not know enough about to write anything worth reading I am afraid to say.  But it IS something I will we looking into.  That I promise you.

To enter to win TWO of these lovely glass refrigerator dishes like you see below, simply leave me a comment about what you are going to do to try and reduce your plastic purchases.  New ideas are welcome!  Take a peek to the right at all the cool items I found for reducing your need to carry plastic for your lunch etc.  And great replacements for  the plastic you use now. Click on the pictures and you will be taken to the purchase area at Amazon.com.  Easy Peasy!

I have several sizes in these glass refrigerator dishes and I LOVE THEM!  LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!  Now this little green giveaway will be a quicky so don’t dilly dally around.  Get your name in by leaving a comment and idea if you have one.  Or just your pledge to TRY to reduce your plastics.  I will draw the winner this Saturday at noon so you have until then.  But hey, Sunday when you venture over to see who won, guess what!  Another giveaway!  Not kidding.   This will be a Valentine themed giveaway with recipes and a product to win, so stay tuned!  Yummy stuff coming up!

Thanks so much for the time you spend here and know I do appreciate your comments and encouragement.  Have a lovely evening and try to stay warm!

Not having fun this morning weather-wise.  Tornado just 7 miles north of here.  YUCK!  But seems the worst is over and we will just try to stay warm now 🙂

Now I have a GREEN challenge for you for February.  Oh, don’t think this is all that’s going on for February but this is the first of many announcements that you won’t want to miss!

I am borrowing an idea from Rodale so don’t think I am a green genius or anything.  Let’s all celebrate PLASTIC FREE FEBRUARY. Three Simple Rules.

  1. No buying or acquiring new plastic.
  2. No cooking or storing food in plastic.
  3. Minimize all plastic usage.

I will be posting something new and interesting pertaining to this challenge again tomorrow so please check back!  In the meantime try and think of just one plastic thing you can eliminate today.

Free February Desktop Calendar is Ready!

I cannot believe it is already time for a new calendar!  This month of January has flown by and has been an interesting one all at the same time.  Jerry is back in Tunisia and I am trying to keep my perspective and not worry too much.  I will try to have a little more than calendars for you in the next couple of days.  But until then Happy February 2011!  Let’s make it a good one!
