Pre-Back to School Thingy GIVEAWAY!


Photobucket


Update;Congratulations Gianna, on winning the ReBinder Back to School kit!

Update: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!

Update: I can't believe you people do all that recycling. Y'all have put me to shame! - Mr Couch

See that countdown up there? It's ticking. Not just for the Back to School Thingy, but for, you know, actually getting the kids back to school.

Now, we all know the environment is a global concern these days, and that if something is not done soon, collectively and responsibly, the world will soon look like this. And me personally, I'm not one for environmental apocalypse. So, we all have to do our part!

And I mean, on a daily basis. You don't have to go all Al Gore; there are effective and time-efficient methods of helping the planet along on its merry jaunt around the sun which you can use, with little effort.
Photobucket

The ways we help the environment are turn off unnecessary lights, watch our water usage, and "bundle" errands together for using the least amount of gas.

Squish said...

At my house,which is VERY active, I have 6 sons and a husband, who is a really BIG kid. We try different things to help the environment. We save all of our pop cans and when we have a car load or two, we bring them to the recycling center. The kids are able to see the recycling center, they are aware that they have done something good for the environment,they are allowed to see that there is a monetary value as well to recycling pop can. With that money, they are allowed a treat and then the rest goes toward our vacation later on in the year. We only go to places we can afford from our savings.

mannequin said...

Over the last year, I've become increasingly diligent in my efforts to recycle, reuse and nurture nature. I don't throw jars away, I use the for storage. I don't throw old clothes away, I use them to make blankets and throws. I really cannot stand putting anything in the trash anymore!

I help the environment by no longer using plastic or paper grocery bags, I always use cloth bags.
All of our lightbulbs are energy effecient light bulbs. I started recycling about two weeks ago. I take public transportation(METRO) whenever possible and also walk to the store if I'm shopping at one close by my house. Also on Earth Day I planted a tree in my yard. :)

Oh this would be so wonderful! I'm starting at a new college this month and could use my fantastic freebies. I recycle and reuse everything I can. I also give away old clothes, books and general "stuff" instead of throwing it away. I try to unplug everything electrical when I'm not using it and I don't turn on lights during the daytime. I use reusable bags when shopping and I try to use environmentally friendly household products as much as I can.

I've made an effort to unplug non-essential devices and appliances when not in use. I've also cut back on my water usage by taking shorter showers and running my washing machine and dishwasher on more efficient settings. And I've started walking and biking a lot more than I used to to cut back on my fuel usage. I hope all of these small measures add up to reduce the size of my carbon footprint.
