Climate change is not just a problem of the government, of the environmentalist, nor of the climate change advocates but it is a problem that everyone has to take part of in finding solution. There are many little things we can do to make a difference and help avert this planet threat. If we try, each one of us can do our part to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that we put into the atmosphere. Many of the greenhouse gases come from things we do every day.
Your morning coffee sachet, your hotdog wrapper, your sandwich bag, your market plastic wastes, your shampoo container, your toothpaste plastic tube, your child’s styro pack lunch and so on and so forth. It maybe a callous move, but if we need to help avert this situation, we need to change our culture and vice versa.
So as a starter, why not dare yourself and do the Aladdin "Do The Reuse Challenge", it’s a 30-day challenge to give up anything plastic disposables that you’ve been used using like paper cups, water bottles, or even food containers. Everyone here is welcome to participate.
Now, here’s the exciting part, when you accept the ‘Do the Reuse Challenge’, you are entitled to get discounts and free shipping on selected Aladdin products which you can permanently reuse throughout the challenge through their website, www.shopaladdin-pmi.com. Or you can like Aladdin on Facebook and get updates about this challenge.
Here are some facts about how much resources we’re throwing out by not reusing.
● 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.
I should take consideration about this challenge. How about you?
