Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

It's a challenge to go thirty days without using disposable water bottles, ziplocs, paper plates, or paper cups. If you accept the challenge, you can get a discount online at the Aladdin store to buy reusable items that will help.
If you are interested in participating you can accept the challenge at http://www.dothereusechallenge.com or you can learn more at Aladdin on Facebook.
You would be surprised at the amount of money you can save yourself by doing this. For example, if you use your own coffee mug in the morning, you are more likely to brew your own coffee rather than grabbing a to-go cup. In a year, you could save almost $500!
If you pack your own lunch using reusable containers such as Bento boxes, you will keep yourself from eating out as much. Not eating out during the week can save you more than $2,000 a year!
In our house we have already switched from paper towels to rags that can be rewashed. We have a great takeout restaurant here that serves their food in reusable plastic containers. So we use those instead of Ziplocs in our lunches. CVS has been clearancing out their summer items and I recently bought both boys aluminum water bottles that they can use and refill.
What are you doing to accept the challenge?
