As one of only 5 Eco-Brokers in Knoxville, TN I am a big supporter of Green Living and being environmentally conscious.  I am also a Daisy Girl Scout Troop Leader for my two Daughter's Troop.  This past Monday our Troop was earning their Orange Daisy Pedal (the Daisy equivalent for a badge) based on the theme "be responsible for what I say and do".  To get this point across we talked about caring for our environment and completed a service unit project at Blue Grass Elementary where we did a campus clean-up. 


Prior to starting the school clean up I questioned the girls (ranging from 5-7 years old) about why we need to help conserve the Earth and these were some of the answers/statements I got:

  • "The Polar Bears are in a war and they are losing because people are not keeping things clean and recycling.  If Grandmom would only recycle the polar bears could stay alive"
  • "Recycling is so important to keep our world clean because if not it gets too dirty everyone should recycle.
  • "Factories have too much dirty smoke that will make it hard for people to breathe and can make people sick"
  • "Animals will eat our trash and it will get stuck in their throats and choke them to death"

The girls loved the trash clean up and because our meetings only last 1 ½ hours I had to stop the clean up because it was time to go home.  Several of the girls were very upset because they could still see trash.  One little girl commented " But Miss Christine how can we stop, there is still so much trash out there, how will we ever get it all picked up".  This comment actually touched me so much that I got a little choked up.  I explained that it is up to them to spread to word to their friends not to litter and to do their part to keep our Earth beautiful.

Great post, ladies.  Yes, there are not that many EcoBrokers in Knoxville yet, but we always emphasize quality over quanitity. 

Your local association is great to work with, and they've helped us get the word out to Knoxville REALTORS, so we're hoping to increase the EcoBroker presence in 2009 and beyond. 

Keep up the good work!
