100th Post! {And a celebratory giveaway}


Bleatings from EnviRambo.

Hey, guess what?  Last week was my 100th post here at The Booth!  My how time flies when you are having fun.  I joined the caped crusaders just 16 posts from the GPB's inception, two years ago, back in October of 2008.  Crazy, huh?

I have learned a ton from fellow posters since then and continue to do so everyday.  Your comments have been enlightening and encouraging too.  I would like to give something back to the dedicated readers of the Green Phone Booth so I am having a little giveaway.


As you know I have a surplus of black Seventh Generation recycled-plastic trash bags and only a few weeks left to use them.  There is no way I can even make a dent in the amount of bags we have on hand by November 1.  We simply do not produce that much trash.  Several people suggested donating or giving them away, so that is what I am going to do.

I will send out one box containing 20, 30-gallon black trash bags to 5 randomly chosen people.  To enter leave a comment telling me one thing you have learned from reading The Green Phone Booth.  I will choose the winners Monday (Oct. 18) and post the results next Tuesday (Oct. 19).  Good luck!

I learned How to make going no poo actually work for me!! And lots of other things too, but going no poo successfully happened at a time in my life when I truly needed to be able to do this. (sorting out possible allergies, sensitive skin, etc.)

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who make this community so helpful!!!

Your recent post about what I could live without motivated me to go through our old clothes and such and pass them along to people that could use them... now.

Since I have a terrible memory, I'll just go with the creeper baskets -- which are pretty cool and a great idea to do with an invasive species!

I'd be happy to use these bags! If I'm a winner, you know I'll use them well.

One thing I've learned: there are other people - indeed, other bloggers - who care about making a difference in our world. Sharing practical tips encourages others. Keep up the good work!

Just one thing I've learned!? I'm sure I've learned a ton...

Two random favorites (meaning, the first I could remembet) turning thrifted sweaters into felted craft projects. How to grow fresh air.

I made the best ruhbarb cobbler ever using a Green Phone Booth Recipe!

how to pack lunches & eat out with less waste!

Robbie said...

Wow, Annette, I'm glad the post made a difference!

Well, if fellow boothers count, I've learned that I'm not the only person crazy enough to make changes, and I've gotten a few ideas for when I'm brave enough to break out the sewing machine! :-)

You can leave me out of the giveaway, but I thought I'd chime in and say that my favorite posts of yours have been:

PDeA and what you can do about it

You might be going green if

In a world full of men

Here's to 100 posts!

I learned (well actually already knew) it is not a good idea to mess with a group of enviromentally minded mothers. Really!

Green Bean said...

It has been an absolute hoot to blog along side you, Rebecca. You never cease to amaze, surprise, and entertain me. I learned that you can wash your dishes with Borax and Washing Soda. Crazy!

And, like Erin's lead, my favorite post of yours: You Might Be Going Green. Loved that one.

Congrats. oh, and you can leave me out of the running. :)

I think one of the perks of this blog has been to find amazing women who are doing what they can to create a difference while still recognizing how difficult that difference can be to create at times. I've learned, been reminded of, or been pushed to rethink numerous things regarding a "greener" way of life. Recently, I was educated on the availability of reusable air filters! :) Here is probably where I was first introduced to the concept of intermixing veggies and flowers in the beds of or in replace of your front lawn. And its where I find many references and reviews to interesting books! And I totally love our recycled trash bags by Seventh Generation and would greatly use any extras!

I've loved all the going green tips. I'm trying to get my family to be more ecofriendly, so the more tips I have for changes, the more likely we'll find something everyone can agree to do!

My favorite is You Better Believe It...I have started using my own dishes and silverware at work. I love it that I am no longer using up our valuable resources.

Thanks for all your wonderful posts.
