8 tips for parents and children in August in Freiburg – Freiburg

Hot, hot, summer 2022. It has been widely said lately that this will be the coldest summer in the rest of our lives. That is why there is not only advice for events, but also advice on how to do something for the climate with children.

Everyone is talking about climate change and every small change counts. Although children are the last people who can do anything about the current state of our planet, they are the ones most affected by the consequences.

We can implement some things with our children in daily life.

  • Leave the car at home and ride your bikes whenever possible. This is good for health and the environment.
  • When eating ice cream, dispense with the spoon and cup and use the waffle. Even if the waffle ends up in the trash, it’s better than a plastic disposable cup. After all, the cone will decompose in a maximum of five days, while the plastic sundae will take at least 20 years.
  • No straw, please: Don’t use a straw when ordering drinks in cafes and restaurants.
  • Design the front and back as you draw – a reversible image, so to speak. It is better to make an additional box for you and your children to collect the “old” paper. Often messages, invitations, etc. written on one side can be drawn on the other.
  • Buy and sell new clothes and toys at the flea market, on Ebay or in second-hand shops, or exchange clothes and toys with family friends, at kindergarten or school. You can also write on the birthday invitations that you are also happy about the used gifts and that not everything has to be new. It is quite normal for us now that gifts are often sought after on Christmas and birthdays.
  • Borrow books from the library or from friends.

These are little things that we can easily implement in everyday life and many of you probably already do. If you have more advice, please write to us!

In August it is usually calmer in the event area. Theaters are taking a break from the season and party and squat season is approaching too. But the holiday display is more colorful.
