It’s not just your house that you need to worry enough about to turn green. After working hard to make your place as sustainable and green as possible, why not do your homework together with your neighbors and turn your neighborhood into one that is also green. Here are some tips.
Sharing the garden space. Why would I share my garden with my neighbors? There are several benefits that you can get from this law. First, your unused garden can be a space that supports plant and flower life. It can be turned into one that produces fruits and vegetables. There are organizations that are willing to give seeds in exchange for the favor of using their garden for their activities.
Establishment of neighborhood cooperatives. Many success stories have been told about the establishment of neighborhood cooperatives. These can range from types that support neighborhood recyclable waste collection and handing it over to larger recycling facilities in exchange for cash. Recyclers can often stop by your designated spot at specific intervals to collect what you have collected. This is an effective way to teach your neighbors the importance of reducing solid waste.
Neighborhood cooperatives can also be the kind that produce processed or bottled foods, baked goods, and other profitable small-scale businesses.
Encourage the celebration of exchange days. It takes a lot of energy to do new things. It will also involve raw materials that come mainly from nature to make something that you generally like. Inspired by the old bartering system of our ancestors, why not start organizing exchange days between your neighbors every weekend?
This is a great opportunity to not only write down the things you like, but also to make friends with your neighbors. It will strengthen cooperation between neighbors while allowing each and every member of your community to participate in conservation efforts.
If you’re good at baking, why not bring some of your goodies? Who knows, you can change it for a vase that fits very well on your coffee table. There are many possible exchanges that can occur. You can even make it a swap party based on a weekly theme so things for swaps have some variety.
Going green in your neighborhood can also be a goal to develop a place that is harmonious and where people are always willing to exert an extra dose of help.
