Sadly, it seems that the right and left campaign about earth preservation and conservation are not enough to get through some people. This is the very reason why eco-activist like us, should never waver in our mission to continuously educate as much people as we can in the most creative way possible. There is no such thing as too much when it comes to raising awareness about protecting and conserving our environment. It’s only ideal that we continue to do so until every person on the planet could no longer play dumb and pretend to not know.
Art changes people and people change the world.
You can get creatively green through meaningful arts project and leave a longer lasting impression to the public especially to young children. Art has its way of getting into people and what better way to convey an important message, such as saving our planet, but through arts, right? And to make it even sweeter, you can involve as much people as possible in the creating process which will give them a sense of responsibility and pride at the same time.
Harness the creativity in you and come up with DIY projects using recyclable materials that children can participate in. By doing activities like these you can teach them about recycling and about trash management as well. You can make use of materials that they are commonly exposed to, like plastic water bottles or throwaways for instance. Using items that they are familiar with will give them the sense of reality about the issue and hopefully will make them see the urgency of coming up with solutions to solve the problem.
You’d be surprised to find out how the little ones can tend to be more receptive of this kind of stuff more than the adult does. Children do have the innocence in them that sees things as it is. Their thought process is quite simple – it’s not good to litter, period. Compare to “it’s-not-good-to-litter-but-I’m-too-lazy-to-find-the-trash-can,” thought processing. This is the reason why it’s very important to instill values in them, even at an early age, about living sustainably.
If you look hard, you’ll find art in trash.
With creativity, you can find a number of ways to create something out of what we would normally consider as trash. In fact a lot of artists are now combining making arts and environmental activism into one. By doing so, it challenge ones creativity in coming up with artworks that will showcase not just their artistic capabilities but their statement about environmental awareness as well.
So, get creatively green and save our planet. Look around you and see the arts hiding beneath that unsightly pile of trash. Express yourself through your artworks and continuously bring environmental awareness to the public. Make art. Make a statement.
