Get Energized Challenge
“Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.” That was a popular saying during WWII rationing. At that time people couldn’t just buy something new. This attitude can be adopted again as we embrace a wiser use of resources on our planet.
Visit used clothing stores, garage sales and Salvation Army stores. You’ll save a lot of money and reduce your footprint!
Consider growing a garden. You can do a lot with a small space. Grow herbs and greens. They are highly nutritious! Sprouting seeds is easy too. Ask a grade 4/5 student how simple it is to grow sprouts in a mason jar. Or buy local food whenever possible. Check out the farmer’s markets.
As the weather gets warmer get out your bicycle or go for walks more often. Connecting with nature is important for our well-being and our own energy levels.
