Jumpstart Your Family’s Green Lifestyle
Citizens of Fairfield, Connecticut, how were your Arbor Day and Earth Day festivities? It is events like Arbor Day and Earth Day that keep us on constant awareness of the fact that we need to save our dwindling trees and look out for the welfare of our environment. Year after year, we commune to make an effort to rehabilitate our surroundings, and in the process also educate our kids to do the same acts of maintaining dumpsters, recycling and properly managing wastes, among others. But we still have a long way to go from eradicating pollution of any kind. Here are some suggested “green ways” to help you jumpstart you and your family’s earth friendly lifestyle that you can practice all throughout --- and not just a few times a year.
Reduce Reuse Recycle
You may hear this very often, but these three words make the soundest environmental advice. Try not to add to the already heaping pile of trash on your rented dumpsters. Get in touch with your crafty side and engage in upcycling – a recreational activity of transforming recyclable materials into things of higher value than what it had originally been. Many people have already gotten profit out of this recycling ingenuity.
Use an eBook Reader
Technology has advanced to a point that we do not have to tear down as many trees as during the time of Edgar Allan Poe. Throw those old moldy books into the dumpster and let your roll off service recycle them into other types of paper. And remember those catalogs and newsletters you frequently get from the mailman? Most of them now have electronic versions. It will be a lot more convenient for you to carry those volumes of your favorite subscriptions around if they are saved in your tablet, rather than in their thick paper-and-cardboard releases.
The state of our air will be better if more of our trees are left standing. Take note that Fairfield Connecticut had been recently judged as the most air polluted county. So, we really need to work on this very fast.
Grow a Garden
The size of your future garden plot need not be of industrial proportions. If space is really a concern, flower pots and rectangular trays are good enough as startups. Remember that gardening is not only environmental, but is also therapeutic. Most of all, it is a practical way of teaching our kids that the food we eat come from living things, which need our constant attention and care.
Caring for the environment should be part of our everyday lives. It is also lifestyle that all families can continue to enjoy and reap benefits from all through the years. On the other hand, if you are pressed for time and not so much of an artist, you can have your promising items picked up by a dumpster rental service. Here at GPOD, we give our citizens the option of a roll off service that takes care of our client’s recycling needs. Together, we can keep this cycle and culture of environmental concern running permanently, if not perpetually.
