Aladdin Do The Reuse Challenge

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

Recently I became aware of the Aladdin Do The Reuse Challenge and partaked in a Twitter party with Aladdin.   I am very excited about this program as our family is BIG into recycling, reusing and just cutting back on the things that are not a necessity. As a bargain hunting momma, I am always looking for a way to save money and believe me reusing is a perfect was to save money!

What’s the Do the Reuse Challenge?

It’s a 30-day commitment to give up disposable paper cups, water bottles, or food containers. Everyone’s welcome to participate (the more, the better!), and 9 families will be blogging about their experience on our website.  You can sign up for one of the challenges or all three!

Why are we doing the challenge?

A few months ago Aladdin made the commitment to give up disposables. They quickly discovered all the perks: a hot cup of coffee in our favorite mug; a fresh, healthy lunch made just the way they  like it; a sip of water whenever they wanted it. The Aladdin products made it easy to reuse they are perfect for the challenge and help to save money in the long run.

By accepting one of the Do the Reuse Challenges you’ll be able to get discounts and free shipping on selected Aladdin products through their website, That way you can save a little on Aladdin mugs, bottles and snack containers, which will help you save even more. Pretty cool right?

I encourage you too to sign up and "accept" the challenge.  I did!  Its the little things in life that can make a big difference later.  I used to buy a cup of joe everyday.  Now I make my own coffee and tote it to work with me in a reusable mug.   I also reuse my water bottles and refill them every night for the next day.   Another great way is to stop using plastic baggies for lunches and tote your lunch in reusable bags, containers, etc.  If everyone would reuse and recycle I can imagine how our landfills would look, let alone our roads.  All the plastics that are carelessly thrown out of a car is just disturbing!

Here are some great stats that support the Challenge:

● 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 café.
● 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.
