Challenge Idea - Identify one locally-grown food (i.e. low food miles) that you rarely or never eat and think about how to include it in your diet (in a healthy manner, of course). To finish the challenge you need to try it at least once during the week/month. Share the results, share the joy :-)

Hey, that's good. Maybe we can do that for the month of July. That will give people time to weigh their buckets (so they can subtract it from their total recycle weight) and gather more stuff.

How exciting! Thanks! I'll make it a sticky topic: July '08 Green Challenge!

How about weighing our recyclables (recycling buckets not included in totals) before setting them out, and then at the end of the month we can say "Our team saved X lbs. of stuff from the landfill". Then we can try to outdo ourselves every month.

RyAnn.

What do you guys think of putting up challenges here...I know there is a great one in the 'general forum' (TIN CAN challenge -- way to go, greenbuilder!) but us "leaders" can't move the topics around at all.
Anyway, I was thinking about doing 'green' challenges...like recycling newspaper for a week, or not buying a paper at all, and reading online for a week.
Then there's something similar to the Tin Can challenge...while you're out walking in your neighborhood, take a bag with you, & pick up trash. I'll bet half of it can be recycled!

Anyway, post your ideas here.
