Oooh, I like that one too! I've been working on that quite a bit lately myself. Corollary to that for me is "don't buy stuff from China". But "don't buy new" covers that pretty well. Good thinking!

Voyager fan?

Another idea is that we can do a "No buying new" challenge for nonfood items or a no buying challenge for a month.

Thanks for the kudos, that was also Neelix's idea. Great minds, right?

Today, I am going to grocery store. Great opportunity to remember to take my reusable bags, and not bring home any unnecessary plastic.

BTW, a friend of mine gave me this idea for stores that have pricing scales in produce department:

Weigh the produce on the scale without putting it in plastic bag. Then put the produce directly into your re-usable bag and stick the price sticker on the outside of the bag. Then all the clerk has to do is scan the stickers on the bag. Result: use less plastic, and less chance of produce getting bruised (or lost in your car).

HELSDOTTIR, I like your idea doing one GREEN thing a day and letting it be up to the member on what that thing is each day.

We could do the drinking the 8 glasses of water and eating of 5 the fruits and vegetables is done on just about every team.

I want to try to have some different challenges.

Keep posting different challenges.

I rather like that "one green thing a day". It solves the problems of disparity of situation. Many activities can include a "green thing", as you described, with a little imagination and a "green" proper mindset.

Well we could do weight loss ones such as
drink 8 glasses of water
eat 5 or more servings of freggies
exercise minutes

We could also do something like do one green thing a day such as repurpose an item, use cloth bags at the grocery, recycle something that someone was going to throw away or something that you had to hold on to to get to the bin, or use alternative transportation to get some where (carpool, transit, walking, etc)

HTH!

recycling...of course, some folks have curbside, and others have to haul to recycling center, so i don't know how the challenge might be worded.

I am hoping that if you have any ideas on challenges for this team you will post here. I would like to know your ideas for challenges that we can do as a team or individually. Maybe we can feature a new challenge each month. Thanks for your help.
