The Less Is More Challenge for Earth Day

blklessismore

Since its launch date 31st March 2013 at 9pm The Less Is More Challenge has gone from strength to strength. Securing backing from some world wide brands to encourage people to try out some alternative Green brands through The Less Is More Challenge.

The Less Is More Challenge logo is simple and in Black & White. Symbolising the fact that Global Warming is a Black and White Issue and needs to be TACKLED NOW by each and every ONE of us. It also symbolises simplicity – that you don’t have to spend money on this challenge in fact by purchasing less you will save money.

All you got to do as part of the LESS IS MORE CHALLENGE is to do as many of the following:

1.Pack a lunch for work.

2.Use a reusable bottle for your water – Bobble Bottles are great for filtering as you go and are offering a discount during Earth Month.

3.Do not purchase Clothing for one day. But if you have to try and only purchase clothing that give back and make an effort to tackle environmental issues in the production of the product. I don’t think in one day you will in counter a fashion emergency!!

4.Swap a Chemical Based home cleaning product for an ECO alternative, two of my favorite companies are Lilly’s Eco Clean & Ecover.

5.Discover Terracycle and the ways you can help to “Eliminate the Idea of Waste”!

6.Buy local organic produce or pre think your shop for the week to reduce food waste.

7.Plant a Tree and/or a plant that native bee’s LIKE.

8.Cycle to work or take public transport.

9.Watch the film HOME & film Trashed.

10.Just open your mind for one day to the little things you can do to instill change in our world globally.

The core of the LESS IS MORE CHALLENGE is to tackle peoples acceptance to the way the emphasis is constantly on consumer spending and consumerism resulting in ginormous global waste issues and global warming. If for one day we all had a little think about our own personal journey and lifestyle then it could stick or at least stir something inside. Let April 22nd 2013 be the day that YOU take up the CHALLENGE.

Find out why changing the way you think to consuming LESS will gain you MORE –  Mentally, Financially and Environmentally.
