Simple Sustainable Ways to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint as a Large Family.

How You Can Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Hello, Friends! With a large family, We use a lot of STUFF in our home and a lot of energy on a day to day. Try having three toddlers/babies all in Huggies at once. Watch how quickly you start contemplating if diapers can go into your recycling bin. NO, we have not put our mountain of Huggies into the recycle, BUT we have must certainly thought about it.

When my oldest started talking about the earth and how animals are becoming extinct and how “We” are the cause of it. I, quickly felt attacked (not really, but really). I started to think how could ” Jenkins party of Six” help our environment as a family. Together we came up with a list of things we can do to reduce our carbon footprint.

As you can see this is very simple list, that works for our family. You can easily come up with a list to fit your family needs or use ours. The kids loved coming up with a list of things for Mom and Dad to do. Make it fun! Pop some popcorn, grab some crayons and paper and let the list making begin. Together we can All live an imperfect sustainable lifestyle. Remember, a bunch of little footprints are better than one big footprint.
