Ideas from Parents April 2011

5 Easy Ways to Go Green (And get your kids involved too)
  1. Pre-cycle- Consider the product and it's container before you purchase it. Does it really need that much packaging? Can you reuse the container?
  2. Bring Your Own Bag- Make your kids the "bag police", and have them remind you to bring your reusable bag with you when you go to the store.
  3. Conserve Water- Have each person use one water glass per day and mark it in some way.  (The author used decorated clothes pins.) Fewer half glasses of water thrown in the sink and fewer dishes to be done.
  4. Eat Better- Fresh vegetables generally come with less packaging and are better for you.
  5. Turn Off The Lights- Teach your kids about the importance of conserving energy and get them in on the act.

(I particularly wanted to remember this because whenever we travel I am faced with the dilemma of deciding where to eat. I want something healthy and delicious that also offers something our kids will enjoy too.)
