Talking ‘green’ to the ‘non-green’
Personally, I think Reduce Footprints is remote viewing me.
She once set us a challenge to help others recycle, just as I’d had the opportunity to work with a great bunch of kids on that very topic.
This time she’s asking us not to preach to the converted (as it’s so easy to do through a blog) but to promote ‘green’ to ‘non green’ people.
Now I think she’s been listening to my husband and I talking, because we’ve been discussing this very issue! I’m blessed to run this blog because everyone who visits is a natural parent, a greenie, interested in natural health or environmental issues and I’ve been thinking of stretching my wings.
I don’t mind admitting it’s a terrifying prospect, but if I want to spread my message I have to do it, right?
Well, in the usual case of the Universe, I should be careful for what I wish for because an opportunity has landed on my doorstep!
I’ve been asked to go to a 4 hour information day for residents in a ‘deprived’ area in our neighbourhood. The goal is to educate them about keeping warm while saving money, eating well and taking care of the environment.
I have the opportunity to talk to them about the importance of recycling and I’m going to have to be really creative if I want to inspire them to join in the fun!
I have a few ideas but I’d love to hear yours. How can I inspire people who are time and money poor to spend time recycling and wasting less? It’s quite a challenge, but one I’m prepared to meet if I can! What would inspire YOU to start making small changes?
