Happy Core Values in Action Wednesday, everyone!   To continue exploring Stewardship this month, we have decided to challenge all of our campers and families at home to put Stewardship into Action! With the help of Katharine, the Sustainability Coordinator at Frost Valley, we have created 4 different ways for you to practice Stewardship at home! All of these different actions have a positive impact on the Earth, reducing the carbon emissions that are created. We hope that these simple things will make you think about all of the small things that you can do to give back  and be stewards to the Earth!   Here are the four challenges!
  1. Air dry your clothes, rather than putting them in the dryer. This will save the same amount of carbon emissions that your car produces to drive 7 miles!
  2. Avoid using to-go or take-away containers. Instead, bring Tupperware to restaurants, and definitely avoid Styrofoam!
  3. With the help of your parents, switch over your incandescent light bulbs to LED light bulbs.
  4. Use reusable shopping bags! Leave them in the car or in your bike basket so they are always handy!
  If you are willing to take part in a small and impactful pledge to put Stewardship into action, please email me, Lindsay, at lhutchinson@frostvalley.org to share your stories! All challenge participants will receive a Core Values in Action tshirt for using the Core Values at home! I am excited to see what challenges you participate in!   Peace, Love, Bibbley, Lindsay
