In my childhood, Earth Day was often a special day when I remember doing crafts and special activities to learn about environmental issues. One special memory I have was while living in Indonesia in my first year attending Caltex American School in Rumbai and decorating a small tote bag with a globe and people holding hands.
Since this was a powerful memory to me, teaching my children about this day matters. Global awareness, or the idea of recognizing our place in this world, is an important and useful idea to teach. Although it sounds like a big concept, it’s really quite simple to teach to your own children too!
You don’t have to give a long lecture about the international effects of ocean pollution and deforestation. Children can learn these ideas through the simplest activities, or a short talk about the world that you see around you, or even through your day-to-day actions and choices.
Sharing this concept with your children is as easy as choosing the right brands that are safer for the environment. Small choices like this have a greater impact on the world in the long run.
Luckily all my favorite eco-friendly brands are conveniently available at my local Walmart, where I can shop with my re-usable blue Walmart bag.
My current cleaning obsession is the new Febreze ONE line of products, which you can find shopping in store or online! With no heavy or artificial perfumes, aerosols or dyes, these products help keep smelly air odors far away.
With the Febreze ONE line, I can feel good about using each and every product. It is also the least fragrant and not overpowering at all, which is perfect if you are sensitive to scents.
Febreze ONE Fabric Refresher in the delightful Bamboo scent is a perfect topper to my regular cleaning routine. I always give my hard-to-wash fabrics a weekly refresh with this to eliminate all the odors. When I spritz off my running clothes after a long-distance spring run, I know that my choice in product was a positive one for the earth.
In addition to opening up the windows and allowing a fresh spring breeze to come in, I spray Febreze ONE Fabric and Air Mist all throughout my home. It comes in the light and refreshing Bamboo scent that helps keep my home smelling fresh. This nature-inspired formulation has no aerosols, no dyes and no heavy perfumes. I enjoy getting a light, fresh scent each time I spray!
Another product that comes in the pleasant Bamboo scent is the Febreze ONE Plug. I enjoy the waves of freshness in any room of my home, and it even lasts for up to 45 days! With a customizable scent experience and adjustable scent levels, my home will always be ready for guests.
Febreze ONE Candle comes in the pleasant Lemongrass & Ginger scent. I use it for a continuous scent experience and an invitingly fresh ambiance throughout my home.
My choice of eco-friendly cleaning supplies is Febreze ONE because it works to seek out tough odors and deactivate them, replacing them with a light and fresh scent. Even people I know who run away from heavy sprays and perfumes can use and enjoy them because they provide a simpler, lighter, fresher way to clear the air.
With no aerosols, dyes, phthalates or formaldehyde, it’s also a product line I can feel good about using in my home and around my family. Whether I am freshening the smell on spring clothing, cleaning the living room or bathroom, this line has a product for any household situation.
On Earth Day or any day, choosing eco-friendly products matters! Being aware of this in my every day cleaning routine helps me lead by example as I teach my children to care about the world around them.
