Ways to Encourage Family and Friends to Go Green

The second Monday in February in B.C.–the third Monday in Alberta, Ontario, and Saskatchewan— the wonderful tradition of Family Day comes around here in Canada. Family Day is observed to celebrate “the importance of families and family life to people and their communities.”

Most people involve themselves in activities with the whole family. Our family and friends are often the greatest supporters of your dreams and lifestyle. That’s why it’s important to reach out to them from time to time to let them know what you’re doing to help the environment. They’ll likely be very receptive to your ideas and may even change a few of their bad habits because of the information you’ve provided to them. If they see how your lifestyle is making a difference, they’ll feel encouraged to go green themselves.

One of the easiest ways to get your family and friends to jump on the green bandwagon is to share what you know and how it’s made your life better and easier. People are always looking for ways to improve their current situation. Let them know how using a natural cream has changed the way your skin looks or carrying your lunch in a triple insulated food container has helped you cut back on waste and take control of your diet.

When they hear your testimonial time and time again, they’ll know that it is valid. They’ll want to give the products that you find effective a chance. After all, the items may revolutionize their lives the way they have yours.
