3 Ways Choosing Blue Bins Teaches Your Kids about Conservation

There are a limited amount of natural resources in the world, which is one of the reasons it’s so critical to teach our kids about conservation.  Sometimes, the easiest ways to teach are simply to show children what to do.  As they begin to learn from the examples we set, conservation becomes second nature to them.  One of the ways we like to suggest parents illustrate conservation techniques when they are in the moving process is to choose Blue Bins for all moving bins and supplies.

Blue Bins is committed to supplying and using all-recycled (and recyclable) plastic moving boxes.  Unlike traditional cardboard boxes, Blue Bins are clean, sturdy and environmentally friendly.  Plus, we believe that people who use Blue Bins are showing the youngsters in their lives that:

  1. There are always choices in life, and we can choose to make the right ones.  Kids who realize that they have the power to decide Product A over Product B will often begin to make wiser selections.  Though not all of them will be green, many of them will.
  2. Moving day can be a lot of fun, and a lot less stressful!  Moms and dads tend to get pretty stressed out when they are moving; that’s understandable, given the high anxiety of the day.  With Blue Bins, moving is much simpler because there are no cardboard boxes to put together (or to break down.)  This takes a lot of the tension out of the air!
  3. There are companies that do care about the environment.  This has been a strong philosophy for us, and boys and girls can begin to understand that corporations can be caring.  Since many of them will be starting their own businesses one day, we hope their conservation beliefs pour over into their corporate cultures.

Although this might sound like a trite adage, but children really are our future.  The more we invest in helping them understand how positive it can be to make the time to take care of the environment around them, the better.
