Change the World Wednesday - Feature

Banner by Argentum Vulgaris

I found an awesome blog, Reduce Footprints! I was featured as a new follower and accepted the challenge last week of buying from your local thrift or second-hand store... how easy is that! I rarely buy new, but I absolutely love to buy from the Good Will or Salvation Army stores in my area.

Want to participate? Here's how:

THE IDEA BEHIND THE CHALLENGE

What if a whole lot of people did the same "green" activity during the same time period? Would we have a positive impact on the environment? I believe we would! That's the simple concept behind Change The World Wednesdays (CTWW). Each week a new challenge will be posted, here on Reduce Footprints ... something which is easy to do and when done "en masse" will have a positive effect on the earth. It's the idea that when a lot of little actions are joined together ... the impact can be huge. We hope to take a huge step towards saving the earth.


RULES

We call them "rules" but actually, there are no rules ... only suggestions to make this activity successful:

  • Commit to the activity by leaving a comment agreeing to participate in the challenge.

  • Pass the word ... talk about it, email your friends and family, and/or blog about it.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
