As I have said before, the small frugal steps we take eventually make a big impact. The same is true of simple steps to live a little greener. Unplugging an unused electronic, giving up paper towels, and turning off lights not only helps your budget, but the environment as well. It is also an important factor in good stewardship.

This Thursday, April 22nd marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. Cascadian Farm wants you to join the celebration by pledging to follow a few eco-friendly tips on Facebook. Choose from eight different pledges, ranging from reusing clothes to reducing your speed while driving on the highway, and find the one that fits your lifestyle.

For each person that signs a pledge now through May 31, 2010, Cascadian Farm will donate $1.00, up to $40,000, to the Organic Farming Research Foundation, which fosters the improvement and widespread adoption of organic farming systems. An easy to give while saving!

Right now they have around 3,000 pledges, but I know they can do better with our help! It just takes a moment of your time. Pledge here on Facebook.

Dedicated to organic goodness since 1972, Cascadian Farm products are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, chemical fertilizers or genetically engineered ingredients. I absolutely love their products, especially the Dark Chocolate Almond Granola. Seriously, so good!

    we enjoy walking around the block for exercise, hanging laundry outside to dry and also turn off lights in the rooms when we’re leaving them

  2. chrissyb says

    In honor of earth day we are going to plant two trees in our backyard and plant a veggie garden to make our own baby food. Thanks for the chance!

  3. Laurel says

    My pledge is the food planner pledge. I will not throw away food! I will look in the fridge before a grocery run.

  4. Julie Cutshaw says

    main entry: I’m trying to use less electricity by hanging out laundry verses using the dryer and windows open no air conditioner and planting more vegtables in patio containers instead of buying thanks

  5. Jenna says

    I am trying to unplug things unless they are being used. And also try not to use paper towels. Only for dog messes :)

  6. Deanna says

    We have planted one raised bed veg garden, and are going to build a 2nd one soon to grow our own food. And plant a couple more trees for the earth.

  7. Carol W. says

    I’m really trying hard to remember to take my own shopping bags when I go to the grocery.

  8. says

    My pledge is to try to use re-purpose more items (i.e. find another use for glass jars, use plastic trays again & again for arts & crafts). We already recycle, etc., but I think upcycling and re-purposing will be fun!

  9. Sidni H. says

    Our family recycles just about everything we can. We also use totes to cut down on plastic bag usage & reusable water bottles instead of purchasing water bottles. We have energy efficient lighting in our home. We compost for our veggie garden also. Thank you for sharing this awesome giveaway with us.

  10. jennifer r says

    i am always looking for ways to live greener! it is an every day learning process! i am open to change! slowly giving up paper towels :)

  11. says

    With the weather being so nice lately, it is easy to be green! We are lovin’ to spend every moment we can outside- gardening, riding bicycles, and playing!

  12. Jennifer B says

    A small change is I am going to be riding my bike more instead of driving now that the weather is getting nicer

  13. MEJLL25 says

    our family has given up paper towels! it wasn’t easy at first but it’s been a few weeks now and we’ve gotten used to it. we didn’t realize how much of a waste it is!

  14. Carrie says

    i’m buying almost all of my meat, produce, and dairy as organic now

  15. says

    I’m going to try to be better about unplugging appliances when they aren’t being used. We “inherited” a large TV recently, and I have a feeling that it really chews up some electricity, even while sitting idle, so I want to try to keep it unplugged (maybe the extra effort of having to plug it in will even keep us from watching it as often!).

  16. Sammy says

    I already recycle at home and in my office, but I’m going to strive to unplug things that aren’t in use. TVs and computers use so much energy and you don’t even realize it

  17. Christy says

    I love using my reusable shopping bags- so much easier than having to deal with way too many plastic bags!

  18. Mary S says

    We’ve gone green in a lot of areas and my new one is to use green cleaners more often and eventually only use green cleaners.

  19. Melissa K says

    I am trying to use less paper products. We have used the same paper towel roll now for a LONG time! Yea! We are also using our electricity less.

  20. Heather says

    Growing a square foot garden this year to reduce the amount of space I use in my yard and get more out of the whole gardening experience.

  21. Linze! says

    I plan to reuse or donate my clothes and send them to be donated to local shelters, goodwill, salvation army, etc. Helping those in need is my number one pledge!

  22. Carolsue says

    I am pledging to be more diligent about using canvas shopping bags. Old habits die hard, but I’m trying!

  23. Michelle G says

    I try to recycle everything possible at home and at work, buy local produce and products and unplug everything not being used

  24. Bethany Goff says

    To me, it just makes good sense to recycle things, to use less water and electricity, to buy used clothing – it is good stewardship like you said. But it also makes good financial sense. Our grandparents and earlier ancestors “recycled” from necessity! It would make them smile to see their grandchildren returning to some of the same principles!

  25. Jennifer V says

    I pledge to conserve electricty and make sure the lights are off when we leave rooms.

  26. Diane says

    I have pledged to print only when necessary, use both sides of the paper, and turn off the water when brushing teeth – and always use an aluminum water bottle. Recycle – Reuse – Reduce. Oh, yea and I always use my reusable bags at the grocery store.

  27. betsy says

    We are pledging to eat local by planting a garden and helping with a garden at our children’s school.

  28. Kay says

    I’m crushing soda cans instead of just tossing them in the trash and taking them for recycling. It’s amazing how many you go through without being aware of how much rubbish you’re creating. Thanks for the chance to enter!
