Earth Day Countdown equals April Giveaway

That's right, in celebration of Earth Day this month, I'm doing a rolling giveaway until April 22nd. What's a rolling giveaway, you ask? Well, I've decided it means the following...

For your chance to win a special Earth Day prize pack (at a value of more than $50), here's what you need to know and do:

Everyday (minus weekends) I'm going to commit to posting on a regular basis again. That's right, no more slacking on my part... Promise! 0:) In each post, I will mention one thing I will or have already done that day to LOVE MOTHER EARTH! For your chance to win you must simply do the same.

You don't have to post a comment every day, but each day you do comment (on what you've done to do your part to love our planet) equals one additional entry. Thereby improving your chance to win by one more each time! How about that? ;D That means if you comment every weekday between now and Earth Day, you have up 7 opportunities to improve your chances to win!


For, as well all know, while we celebrate Earth Day only once a year... We should be loving our dear Mother Earth every single day. So be it big or small, let's be proud of the green acts we do and share 'em, we just may pick up a few good green habits from one another in the process ;)
All right... Here it goes, let the April Giveaway and Earth Day Countdown begin!
Today, I will walk everywhere: to work, to my appointments, to the store, everywhere. I'd like to say I'd bike but my bike's out of commission, and while transit is still eco-loving, I know I can use the exercise ;) It's a simple act, but green deeds don't always have to be complicated or hard, right?

What are you going to commit today big or small? Please share in the comments below, and gain a chance to win some eco-love from Ecojotter in the process ;)

Till tomorrow for your next chance to improve your winning odds... Looking forward to reading your daily eco-acts.

xo,
ej


PS - April Giveaway Guidelines. Please...

1. Be a resident of Canada or the US. Sorry, am unable to ship internationally... But your thoughts are still more than welcome and encouraged wherever you may be jotting from :)

2. Only one entry per day per person. Multiple comments by the same person on the same day still only equals one entry for that day.

3. No retro-commenting, ie., commenting on old posts the day after.

4. Remember to include a way to contact you, ie, email address, website address, and/or link to your blogger profile. Otherwise, anonymous entries will remain anonymous :D

5. Enjoy! Best of luck! And thank you for participating.

Today I am cleaning out some moldy containers that I am tempted to throw away, and then recylcling them.

Today I am starting a composting station in our yard. I have been meaning to forever and you have inspired me to get on it.

Tonight I will pack up a whole load of paper recycling to take in. I am usually very good at recycling even small amounts of paper, but I have noticed that the more paper piles up, the less I am likely to recycle. So in it goes!

Today I am finally taking all my recyclables to recycling at my school.

however, today & yesterday (cause yay! weather permit!) the thermostats were either off or on very low (which is a great change of pace from the wintertime in my basement apartment) & the windows were open!
i dressed warmly to let the spring air in :)

Today I decided to wear my organic cotton t-shirt that states: Hug the Earth. It's my gentle way to remind people that I love the earth, and they should too!

Today, I cycled to work, the better way. Tonight, I am off to hear Dianne Longboats, a Mohawk elder, to speak on the Living Spirit is that which moves in all Beings and moves throughout the natural world, our Mother Earth.

I cleaned up all the branches and twigs in my yard and put them in a bucket to use in my woodstove for kindling.

I am now using Blackle (www.blackle.com) for my home page instead of Google. Black pixels on your monitor are technically "off", so it uses less power.

Finally made it to the blog from FS. Today I took a bundle of bags out to the van and every store I went into to shop I took a bag with me to use. We need to stop getting plastic bags. SDM has a nice little bag that is handy to use.

Today hubby and I made more mason bee houses.

I sold all my household items that I did not want anymore at the flea market instead of throwing them in the land fill.

I used no plastic bags today, and chose compact flourescent bulbs over traditional. I will keep analyzing my purchases to make sure they are friendly to the environment!

Debra said...

Today I drove my Prius on battery on the highway! It takes a lot of patience and practice, but when I do have to drive on the highway I try to use the battery as much as possible.

Hey,
I've been working hard this week at school as the chair of our brand new school EcoTeam! So far, we've started a blue and red bin recycling program, and since it's earth week, we're doing a waste and recycling audit at school to see how well our system has been working. We've also started a compost system in the caf...and we use that for our gardens outside! I planted 5 trees today! :)
Myself, I've decided to bike to work whenever weather permits; and no copping out! I've also taken the liberty of buying my entire family KleanKanteens so we don't have to buy bottled water :).
Oh, and I found out on monday that I've been accepted to go to uni for Environmental Sciences. Yay!!

[ps you have me on facebook, ecojotter :)]
