Now that you've set up your own mini garden, got your reuseable cup/straw, and your bamboo tootlike reuseable cups, reusable water bottles, reusable cutlery, reuseable tote, or vegan wax wraps can really get the ball rolling for other’s eco journeys. A lot of people might not go out of their way to buy these items for themselves, and though they may seem a little dull, they’re useful and eco-friendly. Remember to use reusable wrapping, too!
#1 Share Your Knowledge
Whether you’re enthusiastic about plant-based food, zero-waste living, or cruelty-free beauty, the chances are at one point, you did not know how or where to start your journey. Try to make it easy for others who are looking to dip their toes by sharing some of your favorite tips, recipes, social media accounts to follow, or go-to brands. There are some amazing statistics out there that are truly surprising that can encourage people into action.
#2 Lead By Example
We can all remember how it felt as a kid to be nagged at, and how there was inevitably a certain point where you would switch off. Instead of nagging, try to practice without the preaching part. Try to let people see you eating exciting veggie dishes, using reusable containers and cutlery, or recycling, but most importantly, don’t shame someone for their own choices. Being consistent in your actions often invites questions and starts the conversation – a far more effective way to advocate a more eco-friendly way of life.
#3 Positively Reinforce
When it comes to encouraging kids to form eco-friendly habits, positive feedback is essential to empower them to make better decisions. Involving your kids in eco-friendly activities, like donating clothes and toys to charity shops to help plant trees. Growing your own fruits, herbs, and vegetables can be amazingly rewarding for kids, or even something as simple as topping a homemade pizza with garden-grown herbs is an excellent, creative, and bonding experience.
#4 Talk To Your Bosses
At home, you are the ruler of your kingdom – your recycling is in order, your mason jars are in perfect alignment, and your freezer is filled with leftovers. At work on the other hand, it could be a whole different story. Talk to your bosses about making your workplace a more eco-friendly space – from buying recycled paper to organizing clothes swaps or discuss carpooling. If your audience is less than receptive, try to make things simple and clear, such as putting signs on recycling bins in the kitchen, so there really isn’t any excuse why they cannot try to be eco-friendly.
#5 Give Green Gifts
When birthdays roll around, don’t miss the opportunity to do some good. Gifting green presents like reuseable cups, reusable water bottles, reusable culterly, reuseable tote, or vegan wax wraps can really get the ball rolling for other’s eco journeys. A lot of people might not go out of their way to buy these items for themselves, and though they may seem a little dull, they’re useful and eco-friendly. Remember to use reusable wrapping, too!
GO GREEN, GO CLEAN, BE ECO-FRIENDLY!
