Turn it off!

According to Julie Radlauer-Doerfler, “Going green is not a statement, it is an evolution and as our cultures and needs change, so too will our actions.” A well put statement which is the epitome of what going green is, and what it can be for your family.

Of course kids learn from one another, but they learn life lessons from the adults that surround them day in and day out. With that said, you can teach your kids to “go green” by taking the steps toward it in your household. Read a couple tips on how your kids can take those steps right along with you:

  • Have your kids wear the same clothes all day. While this seems simple and non-impactful, in the long run it saves  you money and ultimately it saves water. 
  • Turning off water whenever possible is one of the easiest ways to conserve energy. Run the water to get body parts and washcloth or toothbrush wet, and then scrub or brush with the water off, respectively. It ends up saving you water and time!

You can continue teaching your kids methods of conservation by visiting and implementing ideas and tips from LivingAGreenerLife.com.
