Green Tip of the Week

July 28, 2009

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?

Here is the Green Tip published on the phone this week for kajeet subscribers:

“Buy Local.

Do you know where your food comes from and how far it travels to get to your plate?  Evan organic food will cause environmental damage if it is flown from overseas or trucked across the country.  If possible, buy local in-season foods.”

Tips by Jenn Savedge, Author of The Green Teen.

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!

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.”

Tips by Jenn Savedge, Author of The Green Teen

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!

The EPA has launched national cell phone recycling week – starting April 6th – as part of its efforts to celebrate Earth Day.  “If Americans recycled the 100 million cell phones that are no longer being used, enough energy would be saved to power more than 18,500 homes for a year.”  Wow.

kajeet offers free recycling.  Just go to kajeet recycles and download a mailing label.  We will cover the shipping!
