Melissa and I are going to have a booth at Tucson’s 2nd Annual Green Festival. (http://tucsongreenfestival.org/) The mission of the festival is to educate, engage, encourage and empower Tucsonans towards sustainable change and to foster local communities and relationships. I am so excited about the festival and what it’s promoting and I am proud that Tucson, a relatively small city, is taking such big steps to preserve our Mother Earth.
Now the hard part.
We are going to show LolliDoo® diapers and educate parents on the chemicals in disposable diapers, the danger to our landfills, the danger to our water supplies as well as water consumption and what happens when the chemicals go into our children's bodies. BUT. What kind of fun activity can we have for the kids ? I don’t want to scare them, nor do I want to guilt the parents, but I do want to raise awareness and accountability.
I would like to possibly set up a demonstration about the EcoSpun® fabric. I was thinking about having some PET bottles and then showing the kids how they are recycled and made into fabric. But how ? I am usually so creative but I’ve drawn a blank. I’d love suggestions. I am not stuck on the EcoSpun® idea but I do somehow want to tie the project in with LolliDoo® . The one thing I know I don’t want to do is have a picture for them to color. I need something fresh. Ideas ?
