Can You Spare A Square?

World Environment Day is this Tuesday June 5. Check out what The Green Guide has to say about it here. And if you haven't already, go green at iGo Green.

I've posted about the little things we're doing to make a big difference in going green. Our next step is to only use cloth napkins instead of paper napkins or paper towels. We're not quite there yet. Until then, I've really been mindful to sparingly use paper products.

I am not sure that the makers of Bounty Paper Towels had the environment in mind when they started the One Sheet Challenge, but I think it's a good start nonetheless!

Put one new sheet of Bounty to the test on any household mess, and share the details on onesheetchallenge.com. The grand prize is a $30,000 kitchen makeover! Hello! I'd be happy with just a new energy-efficient dishwasher!

Now, which mess will I choose for this challenge? There are just so many to choose from!


P.S. Win cute shoes in the
Vincent giveaway!

  2. Oh I'm always up for a good clean up challenge! Too bad we didn't think of our Bounty last week, during PukeFest'07 (as Flip coined it for me).
    Go Green!

  3. I've wanted to switch to cloth napkins too! I haven't yet though :( LOL. Maybe that will be my new thing for this week.

  4. I'm curious about your desire to go cloth napkins. Sort of same debate with diapers... by going cloth, won't that create more laundry: therefore, using more water?
    Just curious about green. ;)

  6. o mama mia- I think the idea is that using a bit of water and detergent to wash diapers/cloth napkins is kinder to the environment that the vast quanitities of trees, water, bleach etc required to manufacture the paper napkins... there's also the fact that they are shipped across the country only to end up in a landfill (and in the case of diapers, they take forever to decompose). :)

    Cloth napkins is one thing we haven't followed through on, I need to get a set of them!

  7. Oh- and it's even better if you have an energy/h2o efficient washing machine! ;)
