Helping In The Community
Most communities in this day and age have at least some initiatives to aid green living, and your community is most likely no different. If you are interested in making a difference beyond your household, then this is usually the best place to start. Looking in the local newspaper and online you can find ways of helping that you never knew existed – and it is a way of meeting like-minded people and perhaps increasing the amount you do from there.
Helping create a greener town or city is something that might start small. People are always throwing away things that they feel they have no more use for – it might be an old television or cell phone and it might be a piece of furniture. Instead of just getting rid of it, there is always another option. One such popular option is what has become known as “freecycling” – if you don’t want that old radio, the chances are that someone else will. Instead of dumping it, why not let someone have it for free?
Another way of helping in the community is setting up an awareness project. A lot of people do not realise how simple it is to live a greener lifestyle, and by making them aware of ways that they can do it you can help them and the environment. Getting involved here, at the grass roots level, you can gain people’s attention for an important cause and help them lead a simpler life.
