10 Green Ideas for Teens (as written by Tabi)

  • When you’re cleaning your room, try to throw out as little as possible.  Recycle old containers and donate the clothes you don’t wear anymore.
  • Make sure your clothes are actually dirty before using the water to wash them.  If they are still clean, hang them up!
  • Ride your bike or use your skateboard to get around or carpool!
  • Turn off the water while you’re brushing your teeth.
  • talk to your parents about using energy efficient light bulbs and recycling.
  • Get a group of friends together and pick up trash from your yard, neighborhood or places around Goshen.
  • Print on both sides of the paper!
  • Use a push mower.  It doesn’t use gas, is better for the environment, and is great exercise.
  • Have plants that take toxins out of the air like Golden Pothos, English Ivy and Peace Lilies.

    Nope, it wasn’t your typo. It was mine, but it’s all fixed now! Also, we may have to discuss your awesomeness level later!
