It’s not just your home that you should care enough about to go green. After putting in the effort to make your home as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible, why not do your homework with your neighbors and turn your neighborhood into one that’s also eco-friendly. Here are a few tips.
Shared garden space. Why would I share my garden with my neighbours? There are various benefits that you can derive from this act. First, your unused garden can be a space for plant and flower life. It can be transformed into one that yields fruits and vegetables. There are organizations that are willing to donate seeds in exchange for the favor of using your garden for their activities.
Creation of neighborhood cooperatives. Many success stories have been told about the creation of neighborhood cooperatives. These can range from types that take over the collection of recyclable waste from the neighborhood and hand it over to larger recycling facilities in exchange for money. Recyclers can often stop by your designated location at specific intervals to pick up what you’ve collected. It’s an effective way to teach your neighbors the importance of solid waste reduction.
Neighborhood co-ops can also be the types that produce processed or bottled foods, bakeries, and other profitable small-scale businesses.
Encourage the holding of discussion days. It takes a lot of energy to create new things. It will also involve raw materials mostly from nature to craft some of the things you usually like. Inspired by the ancient barter system of our ancestors, why not initiate the staging of exchange days between neighbors every weekend.
It’s a great opportunity not only to mark things you like, but also to make friends with your neighbors. This will strengthen cooperation between neighbors while allowing everyone in your community to participate in conservation efforts.
If you’re good at baking, why not bring along some of your delicacies. Who knows, you can swap it out for a vase that’s perfect for your centerpiece. There are many possible trades that can occur. You can even make it an anchored swap night with a weekly theme so the things to swap have some variety.
Making your neighborhood an eco-friendly neighborhood can also be a goal to develop a harmonious place where people are always ready to provide an extra dose of helpfulness.
