As parents we need to teach our kids about the environment and what we can do to help earth survive.
Of course, as with everything we do, we are our kids role models and need to show what recycling is, energy saving and buy green as much as possible.
Research shows that we use way to much chemical cleaning products and that our health is affected in a negative way. It's much better to use natural cleaning products like vinegar, lemon and bicarbonate of soda. There are much more allergies and intolerances around now than ever before. Why is that?
According to studies, we have cleaned away our natural resistance which has caused our immune systems to be less effective. By using natural products we can boost this and help the environment at the same time.
Composting and recycling is becoming more and more common but there is still too much plastic and packaging. Talk about it with the kids and make them part of the decisions. Where can you shop using containers or paper bags in your area?
Make 2018 a year of change towards less plastic, less chemicals and environmental awareness. Small changes can make a big difference!! It's our children's future.
