Eco Awareness – The Introduction

Family life, as we all know, is very busy and very full. We can have many things pulling us in many directions and it can be hard to find the time or energy to fit in something else.

Eco Awareness is an area that families are increasingly aware of and increasingly concerned about. It doesn’t just impact us .. it impacts our kids and beyond.

While we may have great intentions to make changes, a few factors can hamper this. It can be difficult to know where to start and what changes to make .. and secondly, there is a lot of information out there and it can be hard to take it all on board.

With this in mind, we’ve created an Eco Awareness plan that is aimed towards families. We’re delighted to be collaborating with some amazing people and businesses who are kindly sharing their knowledge, passion and expertise.

To best connect with families, we’ve broken it down into some of the main areas of family life … Home, Recycling, Food, Garden and Outdoors, Out and About, Beauty, Fashion and Toys. Within these areas, we will identify some of the main problems and explanations as to why it’s a problem.

Understanding the why is a great way to help people connect and remain consistent. It’s not about being perfect, it’s about greater understanding and doing our best.

Solutions to these environmental problems will then give a direction for us to aim for. A change we can make each month .. a change that can gather momentum.. a change for our good and the greater good.

There will be a monthly post, with no end date. This is not a six month or year long idea that will burn out. This is a collaborative journey for all of us families.

We’d love your feedback and input if there is any particular problem you would like to know more about, any company that you find environmentally inspiring, anything at all you wish to add.

We’re excited .. we feel the change coming .
