And Newsround will be following her every step of the way and catching it all on camera!
You can check out her progress right here in her online diary - she'll tell you the truth behind her attempt to ditch her non-green lifestyle.
"As the producers and cameraman drove up to my house I was feeling really excited and couldn't wait to start the day.
For the first couple of hours we focused on how I use up energy - like leaving the tap running when I brush my teeth and leaving the lights and computer on when I leave the room. We also looked at how much I recycle.
Recycling - start to finish
Then a recycling van drove up outside my house and a recycling man talked to me about what my council recycles. Some of the rubbish I had collected for recycling was then taken away by the truck to the local recycling centre.
If we don't recycle, our rubbish will end up in a big hole in the ground where it will sit for many years. Also, starting to make something like a can from scratch uses more resources and energy than it does to recycle an old one. Today has helped me to realise the importance of recycling."
