Change The World Wednesday's
It is Wednesday therefore it must be time for Change The World Wednesday's.
If you don’t know about
Change The World Wednesday's, it is a program engaged by the blogging community to spread knowledge and create collaboration on issues focused on improving the world we all live in by collectively engaging in a weekly activity to be in some way more sustainable or environmentally friendly. This brilliant concept was introduced by my friend Reduce Footprints.
Last week's challenge dealt with food and going vegetarian. The focus was meatless meals. And, as usual, our Honor Society met the challenge. I hope you'll visit some of these sites because there are some fabulous recipes listed. Recipes that, I'm sure, could make the most devout carnivore turn vegetarian. One of the members wrote a hilariously funny post that looked at meatless meals from a completely different point of view. Thanks to everyone who participated:

So are you ready for this weeks challenge? Here it is:
Most commercial cleaners, commonly available in stores today, contain harsh chemicals ... many, of which, harm the environment. So this week, try an Eco-friendly cleaner ... something that doesn't hurt the environment or us. For some suggestions, check here:

Kate Reveals Her All Natural Cleaning
If you only use Eco-friendly cleaners, share your favorite cleaner/recipe with us and talk about why it's your favorite on a blog post and let us know and or please leave a comment with the recipe on this post's comment section. Thanks.
Here is my All Purpose Cleaner Recipe:
3 cups water ( or warm/hot water )
30 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
3/4 cup white vinegar
20 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil (optional)
Pour into spray bottle and use like any conventional all purpose cleaner.
Another blogging friend of mine has a great recipe for a bleach/brightener substitute. Get the recipe fromWayland Cook.
What do you think? Is it something you're willing to try? If you're new to our challenges, please review the Change The World Wednesday's Challenge Guidelines to read all about it and get the "rules". And remember, anyone who accepts the challenge gets a place in our highly touted "Honor Society" (just leave a comment ... it's as simple as that). Anyone who writes a post about it, gets that post "Stumbled" (just be sure to let me know about it, okay). If you're on Twitter, join us in tweeting about it (my ID = tcinvestor and Reduce Footprints is = Smallftprints). Include the tag #changetheworldwed ... maybe we can start a trend.
We're changing the world ... one challenge at a time!
