This Week’s Green Tip: Create a Green Buying Guide

This week’s green tip on the kajeet phone is:

“Save your parents time and money by researching their green shopping options for them.  Check out local stores and the web to find sources for green goods and then use your info to create a buying guide for your family.”

Tips by Jenn Savedge, Author of The Green Teen

Given the high focus placed on greening schools, I think many parents are learning how to be  bit more green from their kids.  My son’s school has  great program called “No Waste Wednesdays” which they are using to introduce the concept of no waste in lunch boxes.  They promote re-usable containers (no plastic bags) and eliminating single serving containers.   (If you have ever volunteered at a kids lunch hour you know the volumes of waste can be astounding).  It has worked in our household!  The kids push back when you use a plastic bag.  And once you have the containers, moving from Wednesdays to every day is actually pretty easy.

Has your child given you any green tips?  Do they like our Green Tips channel on the phone?  Please let us know!
