Make a Bucket List
This is the first and best thing that you need to do before giving or making yourself tasks in regards to green living. By listing some what-to-dos, you are creating a plan or goal that you must meet. The things you must try listing are the simplest and easiest ones, such as knowing what tools to use, what kinds of plants and trees to plant, and what community groups or movement to join. It will be really helpful for you to start your tasks if you have a list of the things you need to do. This also helps you realize what must be done in your neighborhood and community. You will pinpoint the things that need some fixing and improvement.
Spread the News
You should also share what you have written down on your notes. Publishing an article in local newspapers, and blogging online are two of the easiest ways you can do to spread and promote awareness. It will be a great help for you to reach other people in your community about green living.
Live with a Stance
You do not expect the world or your community will have changes and improvements if you, yourself, won’t start trying. You need to demonstrate the things you want to happen in your surroundings before you get the idea of having other people do the same. At home, there are many things you can start doing for a change, such as recycling and reusing materials, disposing trash properly, cleaning your own backyard, and planting trees.
Join or Host a Community Event
Environmental awareness is really important in every society. If you have that passion to help lessen pollution and solve some environmental problems, you can join an event that supports and promotes the same. If you can, start your own event and host it to encourage other people in your neighborhood. Some of the things that are usually conducted are coastal cleaning program, national recycling day, Earth day, tree planting program, and street cleaning.
Educate Young People and Children
Children and teens are the future generation, so do not forget to include them in this kind of endeavor also. They need to be educated about protecting and preserving their own backyards. This is important to pass to them so they grow with a green living idea in mind. By the time they are old enough to make decisions, it won’t be difficult for them to realize the importance of having a green and clean community. You need to encourage and motivate them to join some environmental causes in their schools and neighborhood.
In promoting green living, it is a must to start applying things on your own at your house, backyard, neighborhood, and even your workplace. This sets a good example to your family, most especially children, neighbors, friends, and colleagues. That way, they will be also encouraged to do the same.
