Every day I try to be the most environmentally friendly person I can be and every day I hope that I am inspiring my children to also be friendly to the world they live in.
But sometime life and convenience gets in the way.
He could have done without but sometimes after sleepless nights with young children a coffee is a necessity!
So rather than feeling Eco-guilty and beating myself up about it, I can choose to recycle the lid and reuse the non-recyclable coffee cup.
So here are some cups full of soil and seed! We know these cups are going to last a while so they can easily live in the garden and withstand heat, cold and water.
Teach your children to care about the word they live in but don’t let them fear the world. Educate them so they are empowered to make the right decisions and if they have to take the option which isn’t ideal, teach them what they can do.
We don’t want to burden our children with fear. We want to give them knowledge and tools to live an informed life.
And remember -books are a great way to help with this education! Check out my list of books that link to sustainability.
