BiG TeA PaRtY Sustainable Living’s “It’s Elemental”

This video introduces you to concepts that lead to living a more environmentally friendly or ‘green’ life. This video is full of information about specific environmental problems as well as easy ways you can combat issues like air pollution, impurity of our water supply and mass production of food grown with pesticides and lacking in taste and nutrition. This video promotes the idea that there are a lot of simple things each individual can do every day to reduce his or her impact on the planet. The video uses humor, quick editing, music and stimulating visuals all designed to engage teenagers as well as their families.

Problem: Water is a limited natural resource and we may run out of it.
Solution: When going about your daily activities cut down on the amount of water you
use at home. Don’t put trash or other items into the water system by littering
on the street or throwing garbage down the toilet. Keep our water clean!

Problem: Automobiles create a myriad of environmental problems.
Solution: Taking public transportation when ever possible and car pooling are great
ways to cut down on automobile use. Riding a bike is another alternative to
driving a car.

Problem: Unhealthy food choices are not only detrimental to the individual eater, but
also have a negative impact on the environment.
Solution: Seek out locally grown food and local food products whenever possible. This
is better not only for the environment and your body but it helps support the
local economy too.

Problem: Most household waste is dumped into landfills or burned creating problems
for the environment.
Solution: Cut down on waste by composting kitchen scraps, recycling and reusing or
donating unwanted household goods.
