STEWARDSHIP OF FOOTPRINTS
Environmental awareness isn't just about bottles anymore. It's about packaging for your cheese, packaging for the meat department, and how to turn your Weber grill into an incinerator. The goal of our Stewardship of Footprints program is to teach you about the different things you can do to help protect the environment. For example, we educate you about certain plants you can grow yourself that provide a hub for various insects (such as bees) to thrive.
TAKING IT TO THE CLASSROOM
We believe that awareness should begin early, so we have created youth programs for implementation in schools. Our goal is to work with a green club in an elementary school, working with students and administrators to implement initiatives. Such a school might have a community greenhouse or a farmers market where the money raised from sales goes to another plot that a high school manages to create a large community garden. It's all very cyclical in terms of sharing and creating a more sustainable community.
We cater specific content for three separate groups: senior population, millennials, and the younger generations. The information we provide gives you what you need to live sustainably and to reduce your ecological footprint. Subjects we cover include:
Rainwater - We produce different videos about how to use rainwater, how to use recycled water, and how to recycle your own water. To reach as many people as possible, we use hosts that speak different languages for the videos we create on our channel.
Composting - We have information about an architect that has created a small plant design for a recycling center. The facility gives people the option to learn how to do their composting or how to create an add-on. This information comes in three different sizes as a PDF.
Downsizing - Living Earth also introduces you to senior estate owners that are downsizing and selling their estates.
