"The Brighter Planet Blog"

Today as I was on Twitter I came across a contest that someone posted! I read all the terms and thought why not! So many of us are trying to be sustainable and change our ways! The more we can change, the better off our planet will be. I try very hard in my daily life to buy fresh organic produce (if im not already growing it) and meat from local farmers that are grass fed and organic. I try to find places within 100 miles of me. I shop many differnt Farmers Markets and am always searching for Farms (meat,produce & orchards). I feel this helps my local econmy,lowers my carbon footprint drasticly and creates better food for my family.

I think I will be entering the part of the contest On Food Sources! Heres the following options in that catagory!

Get in touch with your hunter/gatherer roots

 Grow your own food

 Support grocers with sustainable practices

 Shop at the farmers’ market and join a CSA

Support restaurants with sustainable practices
I cant decide between Growing your own food or Shop at Farmers Markets. What do you think? I would be intrested in your feedback! I thought if I did Growing your own food I could Incorporate my Recycling Garden Ideas and how I create my food and how it lowers my Carbon footprint.
I hope that some of you enter the contest!

If you win you could get this...

•The top 5 entries – 1 in each category – will be awarded an Amazon Kindle DX e-reader and a $100 gift certificate to load it with cookbooks.
•The top sustainable cooking experiences will be featured online by Brighter Planet and partners.

•The top entries in each category will receive cooking prizes such as sustainable kitchenware and cookbooks and get credit for their experience on Brighter Plant website.

•Random prizes will be awarded to a striking entries of our choice.

Im excitied to enter this contest! Wish me luck! I will keep you updated as to what I might do! Dont forget to give me your input! If you are a reader of both of my blogs, give me your thoughts about what catagory I should enter under. I think you as the readers would know what you like best about what I write! Thanks and dont forget to enter my Recycled book contest!


  1. I certainly wish you luck...I have a Kindle 2 and I absolutely love it...I've been so busy reading since I got it that I haven't stopped to think of all the fantastic opportunities it affords me such as downloading thank you for reminding me...I hope to keep up with your progress in this contest...I like this idea you have, "I thought if I did Growing your own food I could Incorporate my Recycling Garden Ideas and how I create my food and how it lowers my Carbon footprint." This country and the world need to be encouraged to pursue this method of food gathering and recycling...we've gotten so far away from our self-sustaining and frugal roots...we need a vanguard to show us the way and help us get back on track. I believe you'll be good one.....yeehaa!!!

  2. Jenn, in New Zealand where I live, all meat is grass fed :-) Good luck with the contest.
