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

Hot, hotter, summer 2022. It has been read a lot lately that this will be the coldest summer of our lifetime. Therefore, there are not only tips for events, but also tips on how to do something for the climate with children.

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

We can implement some things together with our children in everyday life.

  • Leave the car at home and ride the bike as often as possible. This is good for health and for the environment.
  • When you eat ice cream, do without a spoon and cup and use a waffle. Even if the waffle ends up in the trash, it’s better than a disposable plastic cup. After all, the cone will break down in a maximum of five days, whereas plastic glasses take at least 20 years.
  • “No straws please”: Do not use straws when ordering drinks in cafes and restaurants.
  • Design front and back as you paint – a reversible image, so to speak. It is best to make an extra box for you and your children, where you can collect “old” paper. Letters, invitations and so on written on one side can often be painted on the other side.
  • Buy and sell new clothes and toys at the flea market, on Ebay or in thrift stores, or swap clothes and toys with family friends or at kindergarten or school. You can also write on birthday invitations that you are also happy with second-hand gifts and that everything does not have to be new. It is now completely normal for us that gifts are often needed for Christmas and birthdays.
  • Borrow books from the library or from friends.

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

In August it tends to be a little quieter in the event area. The theaters are taking a break from the season and the party and squat season is also coming to an end. But the holiday offer is all the more colorful.
