My bloggy friend Small Footprints over at Reduce Footprints has come up with a fantastic and wonderfully simple idea to help change the world: a weekly green challenge, which you accept and post about on your blog encouraging your readers to participate.
And then they post about it and on and on it goes. It'll be like a big snowball of greenness.
This week's challenge - an easy one to start with - is to take at least one shower shorter than 10 minutes. For anyone in drought-stricken parts of Australia this should be a doddle, so I challenge you to take at least one two-minute shower.
If you accept the challenge, write a blog post about it and then post a comment below with a link to your blog. Easy-peasy.
If you find yourself lapsing into a "Why bother?" mindset when it comes to reducing your impact on the environment, check out this article by author Michael Pollan. He is the author of the wonderful In Defence of Food: an Eater's Manifesto (A must-read if you care about the pitiful state of the modern diet and food production.)
