“The Green Teen” Mobile Tips Channel
May 7, 2009
by Carol Politi
kajeet is collaborating with environmentalist and author Jenn Savedge to get the word out to kids that they can positively affect our environment through their actions. We have launched a “Green Tips” channel on the phone that provides a new tip each week to kids to get them thinking about how they affect the environment and what they can do to minimize their environmental impact. The tips are easy to find – they are linked to from our Navigator web home page on the handset – and they free and available to all kajeet subscribers.
Jenn has provided the tips to us from her new book – “The Green Teen, the Eco-Friendly Teen’s Guide to Saving the Planet“. In addition to publishing these tips on the kajeet phones, I’ll be publishing them on the blog each week. Our tip this week is:
Rent, Borrow, or Swap – Use the 24 hour rule when shopping and ask yourself if you really need to buy it. Could you rent, borrow, or swap with a friend instead? If not, give yourself 24 hours to think it over. If you still want it, go back and get it. Tip byJenn Savedge, author of “The Green Teen“.
Jenn is also the author “The Green Parent” blog which is a wealth of information about how to inspire earth-friendly living.
Please let us know how you work with your kids to help inspire them toward earth-friendly living. We would love to hear your tips!
