How to start eco-friendly habits at home

Read Time:2 Minute, 22 Second

Home is where everything begins. From the way children see themselves to the values that they will eventually embrace, one’s home will always be the starting point. Hence, when it comes to our children’s attitude toward the environment, we must lay the foundation in their most familiar surroundings.

Here are some simple tips on how to get our young ones into caring for Mother Earth.

Lead by example
Parents are children’s first teachers, and the behaviors that we model are the primary ones that our kids pick up and imitate. So when your child consistently sees you throwing trash in the garbage bin, or using a cup and not letting the faucet run while brushing your teeth, he or she will most likely pick up the same habit.

Take a nature trip
Technology is showing no signs of slowing down, and this is why we must expose children to the natural world. By making them aware of and in touch with how precious Mother Nature is, they would gravitate towards practices that respect the earth.

Consume eco-friendly content
Introducing earth-saving measures to small kids can be challenging, and this is where engaging content such as animated films and colorful books can be helpful. Most children nowadays are exposed to some form of gadget and we can use that for good by carefully selecting content focused on caring for the planet.

Support environmental advocacies
Being eco-friendly means accepting that we are all interconnected. This is why living an environmentally friendly life also means championing sustainable initiatives. The Breeze EcoProject is one such campaign. It aims to educate students about environmental issues and empower them to take action.

As part of its mission, the project has partnered with three cities: Marikina, TaPat (Taguig and Pateros), and Quezon City. The initiative is composed of interactive elements like ECollect, EcoPlanter, EcoGarden, and EcoDiary, along with a dedicated workshop for educators. These activities are all aimed at enlightening, empowering, and involving the community in fostering a cleaner future.

2023 marks the third year of the Breeze EcoProject. This year, it engaged a total of 133,356 students from schools in the three partner municipalities. Putting emphasis on education, over 700 teachers underwent training on how they can bring the values of EcoProject to life. New school activities were also launched – EcoChristmas, Workshop for teachers, ECollectPlastics with product incentive, and Project Green.

Being one of Unilever’s purpose-driven brands, Breeze upholds the belief that ‘Dirt can be for good’. This is evident in their initiatives that encourage children, their families, and communities to exert meaningful efforts which help people and the planet.

Through deliberate actions that start from the home and the invaluable push from purpose-led organizations, we can empower our children to be the changemakers that our earth needs.
