Why pledge?

We’re not looking for a massive change – just a small step to do your part and commit to stop using one disposable a day.  We’re on a mission to get rid of this useless trash and make lunch time (and our lifetime) a little cleaner and greener. We hope you’ll help and take the pledge.

1. Make yourself accountable. We’ll follow up via email to check your progress. Please update us on our Facebook page; we can share your success with others.
2. Win a gift! Every month all new pledges are eligible for a $50 gift certificate.
3. Save money on some fresh, new reusables. We’ll email you a 20% off code for www.OneSmallStep.com.
4. Enjoy doing the right thing – it really isn’t hard to ditch one disposable daily. Just reuse a sturdier version of it. Please try it and you’ll see! It might take a while to develop the habit, but you won’t know if you don’t try. One small step at a time…
