I often blog about trying to find products that make our lives easier but also make the world a better place. That is why I was excited to hear about the Do The Reuse Challenge. What is the reuse challenge? It's a 30-day commitment to give up disposable paper cups, water bottles, or food containers. Everyone’s welcome to participate (the more, the better!), and 9 families will be blogging about their experience on the Aladdin website.
I know, I know — you don't have a reusable water bottle or coffee mug. By accepting one of the Do the Reuse Challenges you’ll be able to get discounts and free shipping on selected Aladdin products. Most of all, you should do this challenge to help the environment. Some of these stats will make you sick:
? Seven million barrels of oil are used to produce the disposable bottles Americans go through in one year. ? In the United States, 50 billion disposable water bottles are consumed per year; 137,000 per day; 1,585 per second. ? It costs about $165 a year to make drip coffee at home versus $636 to buy drip coffee at your local café. ? Unless we change our habits, 23 billion paper coffee cups will be thrown out in 2010. ? Nine dollars will generally cover a decent lunch out. If you buy rather than pack a lunch five days a week, you shell out about $2,350 a year.
What do you say? Think you can take on the Do The Reuse Challenge? If not, what little changes can you make in your life to help out and reuse? (For more information, you can also check out Aladdin on Facebook)
