Become E-friendly like Chatter Chimp – it’s easy!

As a company committed to reducing our impact on the environment, we make an effort to use power-saivng equipments, recycle, and donate to non-profit organizations. As a consumer, there are many things you and your child can do to reduce your environmental impact on Mother Earth. And it’s not hard to get your child to be e-friendly; being e-friendly can be fun!

If you introduce such practice to your child at an early age, it will be as easy as second nature to them!. Start by introducing them to develop easy-to-do habits such as turning off lights when leaving the room or turn the faucet off when brushing their teeth.

Buying Locally Produced Food

You can help protect the environment by purchasing locally produced food because there is less transportation used compared to imports. Besides, you can support the local economy and local farmers that way!

Bringing children to local markets would be great too because you’ll get different surprises each visit. That way, your child can also learn more about the environment and understanding the difference between local farmer’s market and the supermarket. Interacting with the local farmers would also beneficial because they are experts in their area of organic farming.

Cooking with Organic Foods
Picking your own fruits and vegetables at a local farm would be a great family activity! Not only is it a great family bonding activity, you can also cook you and your child some additive-free and preservative-free meals.

First, let’s begin by understanding the types of additives out:
- Acids
- Antioxidants
- Colors, emulsifiers
- Flavoring agents
- Gelling, thickening and stabilizing agents
- Preservatives
- Sweetners
Food additives is capable of causing certain behavioral changes in some children.

According to an article on Ecofriendlykids.co.uk, a 2004 study showed that children screened for hyperactivity had reduced hyperactivity once they went on a soda-free, coloring-free and preservative-free diet for a week.

    Molly, you should check out the market in Copley Square. Its goes way into the fall, until the end of November. I have a lot of fun trying different vegetables and cooking with my kids at home. Going to the farmer’s market is a great way to get your kids outside and teach them about where their food comes from. You should bring them by one of the farms next summer, usually farmers will give tours or show kids around!
