Event Description:

Sustainability at Home - Fun for the Whole Family

 

Presented by Wendy E. Nystrom, MA, CRIS, ENV SP

 

Everyone can do their part, especially when working from home and educating children, to promote sustainable lifestyles that encourage positive reinforcement rather than negative ones.

 

The 3 Rules of Sustainability - People (Social), Planet (Environment), Profit (Economic)

 

For this session, we're going to focus on the Planet and what we can do to help support a healthy environment

 

PLANET

Recycling

Although most materials are no longer sent overseas, we are still working on recycling locally.

There's no need to wash or crush your recyclables. Just separate your aluminum, glass, and plastic containers in different bags or bins: Plastic, Glass, Food, Paper

Fun home ideas Wendy show you on how to reuse, renew, and repurpose: 

  • Laundry - make your own detergent
  • Cleaning - Baking Soda Volcanoes
  • Vertical Gardens - build your own!
  • Customized Crates
  • The Garden Wall
  • Pallets and Paint Cans
  • Composting at Home - Any outdoor space can work

 

Final Take Aways

Think about where things come from

The further it traveled, the more GHG and Carbon emitted

Cooking - Healthier and less waste from take away containers
