I’m not a big flashcard fan because Einstein Never Used Flashcards, but then again, we are not all Einsteins. Easy Going Green Flashcards are designed to teach parents and children simple steps they can take to live more eco-friendly lives. 52 flashcards make up a deck, which are printed on recycled stock with vegetable-based ink. The flashcard collection comes in a reusable muslin bag.
My favorite Easy Going Green Flashcard is “Wear the same clothes all day”. I am constantly doing laundry, and I know part of the problem is the frequency with which my daughter changes her outfit. This has gotten better as she has grown older and would live in her pajamas all day. When she was younger, it was not uncommon for her to have worn five outfits in one day when she first learned to dress herself.
Other great tips include “Eat seasonally” and “Don’t waste food”, as well as information on rainforests and cleaning products.
Easy Going Green Flashcards was created by Julie Radlauer-Doerfler and Galia Gichon Clemens. Julie writes, “I am not green yet, I would say right now I am between yellow and green. Going green is not a statement, it is an evolution and as our cultures and needs change, so too will our actions.” Galia writes, “Some days I am green and some days I am purple. I can only hope to grow towards incorporating green into my life and those around me more every day.” Wherever you are on the green spectrum, Easy Going Green Flashcards will remind your family of simple steps they can take to be more eco-friendly in your daily lives.
