For this week's 6th and final Aveeno Beautiful Change Challenge, my task is to find ways to make small changes in my neighborhood.
First, I try to reduce the amount of plastic bag usage as much possible. I use recyclable shopping bags both in supermarkets and shopping malls. It's actually a lot of fun carrying around these light and cute bags. In fact, I can carry most of my groceries using 2 large bags compared with the traditional 3-5 plastic bags.
Second, I make a conscious effort to support local farmers by purchasing my fruits,vegetables, and flowers from farmer's markets .
Thirdly, as an Aveeno Ambassador, I am more than excited to share with you the Aveeno Be An Active Natural Fund. This program supports those that are leading community projects that benefit others in need, educate on a healthy lifestyle and give back to the environment. Aveeno will be rewarding grants to individuals who are committed to making a difference. You can enter to win one of eight $10,000 grants that will be awarded in 2012 by creating positive change in one of the following ways:
· INSPIRE - Inspiring others to see their natural and inner beauty
· EDUCATE - Educating about the values of an active and healthy lifestyle
· PRESERVE - Preserving, restoring and improving the local environment
Apply now on the Aveeno Facebook page (www.facebook.com/aveeno) for full program details to vote for the Active Natural who inspires you! Grant competition starts 4/5.
