A present for the environment

  1. 1. jschmied©2017 Instructions and Examples on how to do this project. Examples at end. You must download this slideshare to see the examples as they are .pdf format.
  2. 2. In our hearts we all understan the need to take care of our environment. However our environment is often neglected during gift giving times. We rarely consider what we want without thinking about the positive and negative long term impacts on the environment a gift can have. Materials and energy used to make, pack, ship, wrap, and dispose of gifts often present hazards to the health of our environment. For example: Americans throw away 25% more waste during the Thanksgiving to New Year's holiday period than during any other month in the year. It is in our best interests to have a healthy, sustainable environment, so…  .............this year I‘m asking each of you to research, consult with your family, and choose an action present that you will do to make our local environment better, cleaner or healthier.  Examples are: Gift of your time to an environmentally friendly cause. A long term project that will result in a more sustainable environment. A gift of something that will conserve resources in the long term. Or anything reasonable along these lines.....  Your gift doesn't have to be big, but it does have to be meaningful and have a lasting, positive impact on the environment.  The goal is to do something that will be positive and uplifting. If you are stuck for ideas search for "Going Green" or "Ways to save the Environment" to get some starter ideas. jschmied©2017
