Sustainability can motivate individuals of various ages with diverse interests to become involved in causes or drives to swap new sustainable items. That’s how you can apply your individual preferences to develop sustainability applications that are useful, practical, and rewarding.
One way to develop sustainability is to structure a course requires that requires interaction. For examples, seniors as students of sustainability might meet regularly with clients in order to assess the needs of various sustainability projects and to work collaboratively on solutions, according to each of the senior’s expertise in some field of life or work experience.
Is industry putting a new spin on products by using the word, ‘sustainability’ or ‘green?’ Check out the site, Sustainable Development Seniors Put Their Knowledge into Practice. If you check out that article, you may be inspired by how the sustainable development seniors had the opportunity to work on client projects focused on local and international sustainability issues as part of the Capstone Workshop in Sustainable Development. Clients included the Natural Resource Defense Council (NRDC), Population Council and Partnership for Parks (PfP).
Sustainable is a buzzword nowadays
It’s a word that the industrial world can use to bring in new customers. Whether it’s a green living expo, a sustainable garden that needs little water because it uses native plants, or making and wearing sustainable clothing, seniors can attract the attention of social scientists when they focus on sustainability through swapping plant-based clothes.
Some people might record an interview or write, others have business experience, and some are into swapping plant-based clothing or designing urban gardens for a community or vegetable gardens for senior community centers near parks, for example. Others might focus on swap meets.
People in different occupations often provide fresh and innovative ideas and may gain real life experience as healthy trends consultants
What’s the sustainability movement all about? Cleaning up the air pollution, recycling clothing, making your own products and foods, or keeping less throwaway items out of landfills? Basically what can you do for sustainability? One path is to focus on plant-based clothing. For example, you might swap ‘sustainable’ items with your neighbors, co-workers, family, and friends.
Eco-benefit swap meets are about swapping canned food items or jars of sustainable foods, for example new jars of organic almond butter, hemp butter, mango butter, or any other new food item you purchase in a health food store or organic foods market. You swap your jar of almond butter, for example, for another person’s can of organic chia seeds. The requirement would be that the food be new, sealed, and not expired, perhaps bought in a health food store, and safe to eat.
Eco-benefit swap meets for new items
Swapping sustainable items can vary from a loaf of bread, a packaged food item, or even musical instruments no longer played by your family. Or you might swap a bottle of aromatherapy lavender, for example that you buy at a health food store, for another person’s rose essential oil or “acai-based cosmetics.” See, “How to throw a community swap meet | MNN – Mother Nature Network” and “About Community Swaps | Share Tompkins.”
The article on how to throw a community swap meet, shows you how to foster community and fill your neighbors’ needs by providing a way for people to barter their services for produce or anything else they might need. But first you have to find out whether bartering is legal in your state.
Some states don’t allow people or businesses to swap services. The idea is to distinguish community swap meets, when permits are needed, from bartering services which may or may not be allowed in certain states.
Make sure that the item is new, sealed, and not expired
Look for companies whose sales benefit causes you’re in favor of informing others. What percentage of net proceeds from sales will benefit the cause you cherish? Since companies change what they sell, you need to update your information regularly. Whatever you choose, the goal is sustainability education.
One way to promote sustainability could be to throw a sustainability swap party either in your home, as a block party for neighbors, or in a community center or social hall from your house of worship. Try swapping new health foods or wearable items that represent sustainability.
The idea is to get together with people to do something other than just observe the entertainment. That’s way taking action might focus on throwing a sustainability items swap party in your area.
