Aladdin Do The Reuse Challenge

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

Have you ever wondered how our busy life styles affect the environment? I know when I was working every day, it was part of my daily routine to stop at the gas station each morning for a cup of coffee. More often than not, I was also stopping by a fast food restaurant on my way back to work after the daily run to the bank for lunch. Sure, neither one of these actions seem all that harmful. However, they do add up. That is why Aladdin is offering it's Do The Reuse Challenge, a 30 day commitment to give up disposable paper cups, water bottles and food containers.

Did you know?... 

● Seven million barrels of oil are used to produce the disposable bottles Americans go through in one year.
● 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 cafĂ©.
● Unless we change our habits, 23 billion paper coffee cups will be thrown out in 2010.
● Nine dollars will generally cover a decent lunch out. If you buy rather than pack a lunch five days a week, you shell out about $2,350 a year.

Please join me in accepting the Do The Reuse Challenge. I'm going to start by taking my own reusable water bottle or cup of coffee with me to school and by packing my own meals and snacks in reusable containers. Don't worry if you don't have any reusable containers because once you accept the Do The Reuse Challenge, you are eligible to receive discounts and free shipping on select products from Aladdin.

The fun doesn't stop here. You can also visit Aladdin on Facebook to learn more about the Do The Reuse Challenge and see in what ways other people are participating.

Together with Aladdin, we can help ourselves and the environment by saving money and reducing waste.
