Do You Know What Day It Is?
It’s Earth Day, dudes! I thought it would apropos to write about being kinder to our planet.
(Oh, wait. I do that EVERY week over here. Oh hahahahaha, silly me.)
Yeah, yeah. Okay, here’s the deal. Blake, a fellow FilterForGood writer, tagged me to participate in an Earth Day meme.
(Before I go on, have you seen Blake’s feature on his personal blog called The Food Chain? He sends little digital video cameras to his readers, and they use them to shoot their own food shows. It is beyond super cool.)
So, the Earth Day meme asks the question, “How will you FilterForGood this Earth Month?”
(What in the hell does that mean?)
It means you are supposed to list 5 things you are going to do this Earth month to better our planet. Easy peasy. Or is it? I’ve already dealt with five milion topics over at FFG, so instead of doing the same old “turn the lights off and recycle” gig, I thought I would revisit my earlier post about household cleaners. Since I originally wrote that on whoorl, I have found several other earth-friendly cleaners that I wholeheartedly adore. So, I give you Whoorl’s Additional Household Cleaners List That She Loves List. (Besides the original ones I previously wrote about, of course.)
1. J.R. Watkins Aloe & Green Tea All-Purpose Wipes – Biodegradable, durable and flushable wipes. They smell damn good and have coconut oil in them.
2. Method Lil’ Bowl Blu – Smells like eucalyptus. Cleans my toilet well WITHOUT bleach. End of story.
4. Seventh Generation Chlorine-Free Bleach – Great for washing kids messy, stained clothes. Free of dyes and/or fragrances and doesn’t contain chemicals containing chlorine.
5. TerraGloss lip gloss in Garnet – This isn’t a household cleaner, is it? Oh, shut up. Everyone needs to look good while being domestic. Smells like vanilla and doesn’t have a bunch of scary crap in it. (Interested in freaking yourself out about cosmetics? Take a look at this.)
Okay, there you go. Are you doing anything different this Earth month? Have you found any new household cleaners (or awesome organic cosmetics, ahem) recently? Do you want to win some great gift packs from Brita? Then post what you are doing differently this month and follow these somewhat confusing rules (copied from FFG because I am slow this morning).
Post five things you plan to do for the environment over the nxet month on your blog. At the end of your list, tag five of your favorite blogs, and include a link back to this post using the hyperlinked text “FilterForGood Blog Meme Contest.” Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs, or on their Twitter accounts (using the hash tag #FFGBlogMeme). Also, be sure to include these rules at the bottom of your post.
An Extra Bonus
At the end of Earth Month, FilterForGood will choose a few lucky bloggers who posted their five things to win some Brita/FFG gift packs to help you go green! Be sure you link back to the original meme post [http://www.filterforgood.com/blog/?p=1407] to enter the contest!
(Or just tell me in the comments section if the above blurb makes your brain hurt.)
