Do The Reuse Challenge – Give Up Disposables

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Aladdin. All opinions are 100% mine.

The Reuse Challenge asks each of us to give up disposable water bottles, paper cups and food containers for 30 days. The people at Aladdin have done this and want to spread the word about the impact it’s made on their lives as well the impact it can make on the environment if we all do take part too. They also have 9 families taking the challenge and blogging about it to inspire us.

I already own a reusable water bottle. Instead of buying bottled water, wasting money and adding to the landfill (if I don’t recycle), I fill up my bottle with clean, fresh water and ice on my way out the door. I can even change things up a bit and add iced tea once in a while. I believe that drinking water from plastic bottles can be unhealthy too, so I feel I’m doing something better for myself. Now I want to take the Reuse Challenge and give up food containers. This will be tough because we get take out a lot for dinner, but we’ll give it a try.

Do The Reuse Challenge and enjoy a cup of coffee in your own mug and your own healthy and delicious meals in your own containers. You will save money and make a positive impact on the environment. Here’s some points about why taking part in the Reuse Challenge is important:

● In the United States, 50 billion disposable water bottles are consumed per year; 137,000 per day; 1,585 per second.
● It costs about $165 a year to make drip coffee at home versus $636 to buy drip coffee at your local café.
● Nine dollars will generally cover a decent lunch out, that’s about $2,350 a year.

You can take the challenge on the Alladin website or through Aladdin on Facebook. Either way, you’ll get discounts and free shipping on the Alladin mugs, water bottles and snack containers. Go for it!

  2. This is just sick: 1,585 bottles per second. I gave up water bottles last year, but we have very good tap water in my city.
