Green Tip of the Week

Recycle Your Shirts

Got a shirt you just don’t wear?  Before you toss it in the trash, pass it on to a friend or a local thrift store.  If it is worn out, cut it up and use it as rags around the house.”

Tips by Jenn Savedge, Author of The Green Teen

As we post these tips on the handset, I’m finding myself thinking that my mom did these things naturally when I was growing up.   Reusing clothes, bags, etc. and donating lightly used items were all a second nature to her.

I also noted in a recent trip to Toronto that everyone was carrying grocery bags to the store – and that I was not even offered a bag when I checked out.  People that had only a few items simply carried the items.  There are great trends here that if replicated could vastly reduce the waste we generate!

Please comment & let us know what your family does to reuse or otherwise prevent things from ending up in landfills.

Green Tip of the Week

This week’s Green Tip on the kajeet phone is:

On the Go?

On the go? Try to limit the paper napkins, plastic silverware and cups. If you are taking a drink like juice or water on the road, carry a reusable mug to minimize the waste.”

Tips by Jenn Savedge, Author of The Green Teen

We are working at eliminating disposable containers of any form at my house.  For the longest time it was just so easy to grab a plastic bag to cover food or to carry a kid’s snack.  And those small applesauce containers seemed indispensable.

But now we are focused on making use of reusable containers and we are working to eliminate plastic bags entirely.  My son’s school pushed us in this direction with its No Waste Wednesday program.  The kids are asked to eliminate any and all waste on that day – and once we started in this direction we simply expanded it to every day of the week.  The applesauce turned out to be a snap  – we now buy it in larger containers and send it to school in smaller reusable containers.  We are saving money while saving the environment – not bad.

What techniques have you found useful in working to eliminate disposables?

kajeet customers know that 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.  In addition to publishing the tips on our handset, I’m publishing them on the blog each week.

Here is this week’s Green Tip:

“Save money and the planet by purchasing items in bulk whenever possible. Buying in bulk is cheaper than purchasing several smaller items and it will minimize the amount of packaging that you need to toss.”
