One of the most important things to Babs and I is knowing that Lola has a bright future in front of her. We can prepare her in every way possible but also there are many things we can do in everyday life to make the world a better place for future generations. These are just some of the ways we try to help;
We turn the water off whilst brushing. You only brush your teeth for a couple of minutes but just think if everybody did this how much water will be saved. Especially as we all brush our teeth twice a day.
We have showers. Babs and I both shower instead of having a bath. I’ve done it many occasions where I put the plug in the bath whilst having a shower just to see how much water I have used. It really does go to show just how much water is saved compared to having a bath. In the evenings Lola will either have a very shallow bath or she will have a bath with me as she obviously can’t shower.
Lola’s clothes get dirty on a daily basis whether it be after eating, dribbling or poo explosions!! Using Persil non bio and washing at a 30° can make all the difference.
Lola loves being outside crawling around and to us it is so important for her to spend time outside instead of being inside watching TV. This way she will also gradually learn about the environment and being outdoors.
What do Unilever do?
The #brightFuture challenge focuses on small changes that can be made especially in everyday life that result in a much bigger difference.
Persil have partnered with UNICEF to give some of the world’s toughest areas to opportunity of a quality education.
Dove have worked on a Self-Esteem Project to increase awareness and help young people to develop a positive relationship with their appearance. This project alone has reached over 19 million young people.
