a few incidents that made me realize how the my eco-conscious habits have rubbed off on the kids. nothing complicated, just start with no wasting of food at home and go shopping together with reusable shopping bags.
// because someone didn’t want it, she brought back and we shared it together after dinner so that the untouched buttercream cake would not be wasted.
// because her friend finished the bubble tea and was about to bin these disposables, she carried these all the way home to be rinsed and recycled.
// because the top is still wearable after mending, she asked for help with my limited sewing skills to extend its wear longer.
// because this was to be discarded after a pomelo peeling competition, she brought back the peeled fruit for me to make pomelo pulp juice. I shared with her how to make great smelling citrus infused vinegar so that she will bring back the peels as well next time.
// because the little one felt “lucky that we bring along our reusable cutlery set”, so she can have a last minute ramen treat without the standard disposables. We were too slow to stop the drink that came in a set but took for no straw. I told her: “we take note this time, we’ll definitely do better next time.”
