Eco-Friendly Activities for You and Your Family: Volunteering

Volunteer Together

It’s a great time of year for some eco-friendly activities and adventures you can share with your family. Here’s a fun and educational activity you can do with your kids that will also encourage them to support their community.

Volunteer to help plant trees or even pick up litter, and teach your children the importance of helping the environment and making a difference.

Benefits of Volunteering with Your Children

  • It can strengthen your family bond as you share the experience of helping others and finding fulfillment in giving back to your community.
  • It can increase your children’s self-esteem by teaching them that they have valuable gifts to contribute to the world.
  • It can increase your children’s commitment to volunteering and helping others in the future.
  • If you’re volunteering to clean up litter and recyclable materials, you can help improve the environment and keep your community looking beautiful.

So enjoy a fun and informative volunteering opportunity with your children today, and make a difference in their lives and the lives of others, all while helping the environment.

The company I work for has adopted a park near the office and once a month a group of us goes to the pack and cleans up the garbage. Last time we were there, a couple of kids who were at the park helped us pick up the trash (good thing we had extra gloves). We talked to them about the importance of not throwing our garbage on the ground and taking care of our world instead. Hopefully we have some new “green team” members.

It’s always good to get kids involved with volunteering early so it will become natural to them as they become adults.
