With so much in the media about “going green” and limiting our carbon footprint, I have been thinking about how difficult it is to contribute to the “go green” lifestyle with a large family. We drive bigger cars with less fuel efficiency; we use more water and have more garbage than the average household. So how can we help keep this world beautiful for our children and grandchildren?
Here are three simple ways that large families can help.
1) Buy reusable water bottles for your family. They can be purchased at www.sigg.com, Costco, and Target.
2) Use dishes and forgo serving children on disposable paper and plastic. If you have small children and need durable tableware, check out what IKEA sells www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50096905. It is dishwasher safe, bright and colorful and very reasonably priced.
3) Invest in a good roasting pan. These can be a bit pricey but worth every penny. First, they conduct heat much better than the aluminum trays so your food cooks evenly and more timely and they are very easy to clean. Image how many aluminum pans you throw away in just one month!
