child giving toys away

Christmas time is a wonderful opportunity to find creative eco friendly solutions as a family. Real Mom Daily has created a family friendly countdown to a greener Christmas to share with your kids!

advent date December 3

Do a toy box purge. Have your kiddos fill a box they decorate with the toys they aren’t playing with anymore and donate them to a homeless shelter.

OR

Take your gently used toys to a neighborhood pre-school or church where they can us them in their classrooms.

Getting your kids involved in the act of giving brings the holiday spirit into the house faster than anything else.  By finding new homes for the toys rather than throwing them away you are contributing less to the landfill pile up. REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE-  toys fall into all of those categories too!
