Do The Reuse Challenge


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Aladdin. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you heard of the Do The Reuse Challenge ?

Well I hadn't either until just now. I am just learning about it too. But I wanted to tell you guys about it and what I've found out.

What the Do The Reuse Challenge is - is a 30 day commitment to give up disposable paper cups, water bottles, or food containers. Everyone is invited to join and 9 families will be blogging about their experience.

This challenge is sponsored by  Aladdin.  You can find Aladdin on Facebook. And find out more about the company and their products.

But, as for the challenge, don't you think that is a great idea? It would be great if everyone could take this challenge. One thing that really bugs me is plastic water bottles.  I really dislike all that waste! I've seen info. on how long it takes for them to biodegrade in the environment and it basically is forever! If everyone would just buy a reusable bottle then there would be so much less waste in the world!

Here's just a couple of stats I just learned too:

● In the United States, 50 billion disposable water bottles are consumed per year; 137,000 per day; 1,585 per second.

● Seven million barrels of oil are used to produce the disposable bottles Americans go through in one year.

That is scary stuff! Everyone should take this challenge! I'm really going to look into this more. And another great thing is if you sign up for the challenge you’ll be able to get discounts and free shipping on selected Aladdin products.  That way you can save on Aladdin mugs, bottles and snack containers, which will help you save even more.
