Healthy habits start early. Get your kids excited and involved by making recycling a part of your childs way of life. My four year old has helped Heal the Bay, walked in charity events and has mastered sorting recyclables. She doesn’t know anything different, she is aware of the world around her and I find that to be a virtue. Here are some easy tips on incorporating a green way of living into your home.
Make your own reusable bags! Before you head out to the grocery store have your kids help create reusable tote bags. They are easy to make (no sewing), functional and eco-friendly. Follow this link to a quick and fun solution to plastic bags:
The “In and Out” Toy Rule: As a general rule whenever an occasion arise where lots of fun new toys are going to brought into our home my daughter must go through her old toys and donate some of them. This has become one of her favorite forms of recycling.
Limit the amount of time spent on electronics. This is the most difficult rule to enforce. With everything these days geared towards kids and video games children tend to lose their focus. I have found a few apps that teach children about recycling :
Let them sort! Kids learn the most by being hands on. Let them be in charge of sorting all of the recycling for your family. It’s the easiest way to help your child grasp the sometimes overwhelming concept of how recycling works.
One pound of recycled newspaper can be turned into six cereal boxes.
A glass bottle can take 40 centuries to be broken down if it’s not recycled.
This honor recognizes Mike’s personal commitment to supporting so many important local environmental organizations and for actively promoting community projects from beach cleanups to creating school gardens. When Global Green needed hybrid cars for their Red Carpet – Green Car campaign (i.e., taking stars to the Oscars in fuel efficient cars), Mike provided them.
LAcarGUY not only sell more hybrids and clean diesel cars than any other dealership group in America, we also showcase energy and resource conserving practices in its dealerships — including the new Audi LEED certified dealership. The LA Green Team represents the company’s commitment to advancing sustainability by encouraging, inspiring and educating its 800+ employees about reducing their individual and corporate carbon footprint, as well as selling more hybrids and clean diesel cars than any other dealership group in the United States.
We hope you will join us in paying tribute to Mike’s contributions and help support the work of Global Green by sponsoring a table or purchasing tickets to the event.
