Create Reusable Grocery Bags
Many families collect grocery store plastic bags in a cabinet. They’re bad for the environment, but they might inspire you. They’re ultimately an opportunity to teach your kids about pollution.
Discuss how long plastic bags stay in landfills. Instead of creating pollution, your family can try something new. They might make reusable grocery bags with fun fabrics. Invest in a sewing machine to start this helpful craft. Your kids will learn how being creative can improve the planet.
Grow Herbs Indoors
Buying spices or fresh herbs involves single-use containers. That doesn’t demonstrate environmental stewardship, so try growing herbs at home! You might even find a kit at a local store. Your kids can help water the plants as they grow. You can have a sustainable household whether your family resides in a downtown apartment or a house.
Try Low-Flow Showerheads
Sometimes kids automatically reject any form of change. They might assume they’re always bad. Demonstrate how sustainable changes are helpful by getting low-flow showerheads.
Your showers will feel the same but you will use less water. The average family uses 400 gallons of water daily. That kind of usage isn’t sustainable for the environment. Teach your kids about how water is a limited resource. Swapping showerheads can leave more of it in nature.
