Today I'm introducing a monthly challenge series on indigo 26. If you're familiar with my blog you've already heard about my 4(for) green acres project (make the jump here for information). These monthly challenges are your opportunity to cultivate your own acres. They are designed to challenge your creativity, test your will power, and pull your awareness to the footstep you are leaving behind.
By participating in these challenges and sharing them with others you are spreading the message. Over time, those around us will be making better choices as well. The goal is not to change how you live your life, but rather think about the implications of those choices and tweek them for the best outcome.
- No purchasing of new supplies of any kind
- While using what wrapping paper you have left from previous years fits within the rules, it is still trash. Encourage the recipient to recycle or reuse the paper by adding a special note with the package.
- Think outside of the box. There are other ways to wrap gifts.
Excited about the challenge and want to spread the message? Grab a 4(for) green acres project badge for your blog by using this code to let others know you're growing your own greener acres. I've added the badge to the sidebar as well.
Don't forget to share your triumphs, challenges and other ideas in the comments below. Let us know how you are doing. Community starts by sharing with others. Can't wait to hear from you!
