It's Time to Give Back
The first week I focused on tips for going green and last week it was all about enjoying what the great outdoors has to offer. This week I wanted to focus on giving back to our community or environment. With last Friday being Earth Day this topic was fresh on my mind and due to the fact that I had been sick this last week I didn't get to expand on it as much as I would have liked so I thought this would be a great way to tie it in to the going green theme of Scott Naturals.
April 22nd was Earth Day and I was proud to participate as a state leader on the B Kind 2 Earth Day Facebook campaign. B Kind 2 Earth Day is a project partnered by Nickelodeon's The Big Help, National Wildlife Federation and The Motherhood. The goal of this campaign was to inspire others to do just one good thing for the Earth on April 22nd. Basically whatever you choose to do for Earth Day collectively will make a huge impact. I was really excited to share this with my children.
Unfortunately I got a late start on my Earth Day celebration with my kids. I was planning on going on what I call a "Trash or Treasure" nature walk and possibly a park or two. I got a little held up because my two year old found a piece of packing foam and decided to shove it up his nose. After several attempts I finally had to throw in the towel and take the one hour drive to my pediatrician's office to have them remove it. With all the chaos the kids and I didn't get back until about 6 that evening so we only had time to take our "Trash or Treasure" walk around our neighborhood.
Our"Trash or Treasure" nature walk was really fun and I loved that I got to teach my kids about why its so important to protect and care for our environment. Basically on the walk my boys had two bags, one for trash and the other for treasures. My boys love collecting rocks so that was pretty much their treasure that they searched for. Going around the neighborhood the boys found lots of both. My oldest went for the trash, the middle for the treasure and the youngest did a bit of both. It was actually really surprising for me to see just how much trash was lying around our neighborhood. I am so glad that we were not only helping our environment by cleaning it up but beautifying where we live as well.
I thought that the Give Back theme would be great to implement not only on Earth Day but as often as possible. There is no greater lesson we can teach our kids than respect. Whether its respect for the environment or for others around us its a good opportunity to show our children how important it is to be involved in our community.
