One of the amazing tools I picked up while teaching in schools was motivating young people to take pride in their environment. There are a multitude of ways to accomplish this task. Today I invite you to enjoy the upcoming warm weather and get the family motivated to clean the litter in your surrounding neighborhoods and parks.
As many of you know, kids are wonderful educators. When you invite a child to take an active role in making the world more beautiful; the message trickles into their conversations with friends and family. Adults can learn so much from children by listening to what they have to say. Create a game out of filling reusable bags with litter and offer a prize to the member who filled their bag fastest.
This promotes family bonding, getting everyone active, and creates a more beautiful environment.
I took my side kick Aussie for a walk and we filled up several bags with random litter on the ground.
There's much to do but every small step we take adds to the whole.
You never know what your example can do when spreading positive messages that evoke change.
