Healthy Green Living Tips
These times it seems that everyone has noticed that we need to lessen the influence that our daily life has on the earth. In particular, parents are attempting to have their households in a way that encourages a earth friendly living. Looking for some ways for your family to go responsible? Here are a few responsible living rules for families.
Green Life Guideline #1 Reduce Waste
Households would lead a responsible life by minimizing the bunch of garbage they produce. Try employing cotton rags instead of paper towels for tidying up all around the place (cloth baby diapers make great rags). Use washable cotton napkins instead of paper napkins. Pack lunches for the family in reusable containers instead of plastic bags. Stop purchasing stuff in single serve containers (juice boxes, bottled water, single serve snacks, etc.).
Green Life Guideline #2 Get Local Food
Support local farmers and get your food at local farmers markets and roadside stands as much as possible. This is a superb tip for encouraging families to live a responsible and healthy living because it is much more fun than going to the supermarket and the food is fresher and tastier.
Responsible Life Rule #3 Reuse Used Up Household Items
Save things such as paper towel tubes, stray buttons, egg cartons, popsicle sticks, Styrofoam trays, old CDs etc., in a responsible craft supply box. The items that would be reused for craft projects are limited only by the imagination of your family. Cut off worn out jeans to make shorts for the children to play in when they are going to get grubby. Reuse old shirts worn by adults as smocks for children doing art. Reuse plastic jars to store small items in.
