Sponsored Post: Save Money, Help the Planet - Accept Aladdin's Do the Reuse Challenge

Aladdin, the company that makes all kinds of water bottles, mugs, and containers, is doing something special. They’ve launched a challenge they’re calling the “Do the Reuse Challenge,” encouraging everyone to either give up (1) disposable water bottles, (2) disposable coffee cups, or (3) disposable food containers for 30 days. Aladdin found 9 regular families that were up for this challenge, and you can seem them blogging about it here.
I just signed up, and here are some reasons why you should Do The Reuse Challenge too.
1. Reusable water bottles are great accessories.
That’s right, this clear and teal bottle ranks right up there with my handbags and heels. From Aladdin’s Sustain collection, this bottle is BPA-free, essentially indestructible, and way cuter than ugly plastic bottles.
2. Using reusables means more money for fashion.
Starbucks and lunches out add up. Here’s a stat: If you buy rather than pack a lunch five days a week, you shell out about $2,350 a year. Why not just get a few reusable Aladdin containers and pack your lunch; you can then put your saved $$ toward your leather bomber jacket fund.
3. You can help reduce garbage.
Sometimes I wonder, will we have to live next to stinky landfills in a couple decades because we ran out of room for our trash? In the United States, 50 billion disposable water bottles are consumed per year – yikes.
Bonus: By accepting one of the Do the Reuse Challenges you’ll be able to get discounts and free shipping on selected Aladdin products through www.shopaladdin-pmi.com. You’ll save on Aladdin mugs, bottles and snack containers, which will help you save even more.
