Although, today is officially Earth Day, really, everyday should be Earth Day. And even though today is the last day to get your Green Week Challenges submitted, try to do your part when you can. Every little bit helps and a little does go a long way.
Did you know Earth Day is 40 yrs old this year? It has a birthday…(?)!
To get you going on the start of your Earth Day celebration (why not, right?) here are some Earth Day deals and freebies from various businesses (that my boyfriend found and forwarded to me! He’s playing too!).
Yahoo Earth Day Freebies
Some of the deals (and personal favorites) include:
- Gain free admission into all 392 U.S. national parks now through Sunday, April 25 (I WILL be there Saturday!)
- Get a chance to win a $20,000 green home makeover by registering on the Purex website by April 30.
- Sign up for the Drive Home Green sweepstakes on Target‘s website through the end of the month. The grand prize is a 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid. You could also win bicycles, electric scooters, a national park trip, and other prizes.
- Add a green pledge to the Sierra Club’s Earth Day map for a chance to win a trip for two to Hawaii.
Pretty nice deals.
Gabi has been a busy little woman doing her green part. In fact, she did almost every challenge and sent pictures to prove it! Way to go!
You know what, you are right. Thank you!
Don’t forget about the P R I Z E S for the two top challenge doers!
For me, doing my part, I have been washing loads of clothes in cold water, hanging most clothes to dry, stopping the dishwasher at the “dry” cycle and air drying them, making veggie dishes, daily green smoothies, we only use cloth napkins, so that’s in, the boyfriend even bough grass fed/farm raised chicken for himself last night! Now that is saying something. Aside from that we usually bring our own bags to the store, use Sigg bottles, ONLY use glass or plastic food containers-reuse right?, and many more. It’s fun, it usually saves money, and it helps the Earth and all of us on it.
I’m so happy that so many people have participated in Green Weeks (even though it’s still not over!) and that most of us do these things on a daily basis! Keep up the great work!
On a food note, check out what the boyfriend made for us…
