Green Fundraiser – Doing a green fundraiser may seem daunting in today’s wasteful, consumer world, but it could be as easy as choosing the right product. There are several to choose from, but here’s one I especially like.
Green fundraisers are not just about helping our environment, but teaching children that green is a great choice as a lifestyle. Choosing green products is a good way to do that. A company call GrowKids supplies a catalog of eco-conscious products at reasonable prices. Kids, parents, neighbors and the community can feel good about supporting this fundraiser.
These green fund raiser products range from eco-friendly paper products to household cleaners and pet products. Personal care items and seed packets are popular items too.
I especially like the pet leashes and collars made from recycled plastic bottles. Americans use 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour and most of them are thrown away.
By choosing these earth friendly products, your green fundraiser will teach a good lesson, offer customers an eco-conscious alternative to candy and wrapping paper, and reward your group with 50% of the profits that go directly to your organization.
Like other fundraising ideas, when children are selling products, safety is the number one concern. Never allow a child to sell door to door alone.
Make sure they can tell their potential supporters why they are raising money and what they can do to help.
“Our school is raising money for new playground equipment. Can you help by choosing some earth friendly products?”
Everyone wins when you choose green fundraising. You can find out more about GrowKids, their mission, and the products they offer at GrowKids.org. Be sure to look at the designer organic kitchen towels! They are made from 100% organic cotton grown without the use of harmful chemicals.
Choosing the right fund raiser is now easier than ever. Going green is a great way to raise funds for your group, make children more aware of ways to help our environment, and simply feel good about your choice.
