For many of us across the United States, this is the last time of year that the weather is nice enough to enjoy the outdoors. Make the most of it, while staying green! Try these three green fall funtivities!
1. Turn off that TV or those video games! Get outside and enjoy the weather. The fall is filled with farmer’s markets and pumpkin farms to visit. Ride your bike there or get your family to carpool with friends to be extra green.
2. Do you have a big tree outside your house? Help out your mom and dad and rake the leaves up. Jumping in the giant leaf pile is your reward.
3. Do your clothes from last fall not fit anymore? Donate them to a charity group or local community organization. This will help a lot of people out during the holidays.
What are some of your favorite green fall activities?
