Screen Shot 2014-05-30 at 2.04.05 PM Unilever Project Sunlight’s latest film, “The Way Kids See It” shines a light on the unique ideas and the magic that children all over the world apply to tackle all sorts of environmental and social issues.

The video brought tears to my eyes, these children are trying to make small changes to big problems.  If every child could make just one small change or have an idea to help one small (or big) problem in the world, think of what improvements we could make to the world!  I know in our house, recycling is of huge importance.

My husband has gotten myself and my boys to recycle just about everything we use – all of us strive to do our best to leave the smallest footprint and to reuse everything we’re already using!

Here’s the amazing The Way Kids See It video about children striving to make their own changes:

As a part of Unilever’s Project Sunlight, I was asked to pick a “Summer Sunlight Activity” – something that would help make my household more sustainable.  I was given a bunch of options (all of which sounded amazing) but am going with Be Your Own Farmer’s Market.  Next week, I’ll bring you pictures and a post that shows how I upcycled some everyday products from my house to have my own Farmer’s Market in the kitchen.  I’m really excited about this campaign and can’t wait to share!

What do you think of the video?  Do any kids in your life have ideas for creating a brighter future?

While this post is part of a sponsored campaign by Unilever Project Sunlight, all opinions and experiences expressed are entirely my own.


  1. Oh Whitney – I love what you chose! I can’t wait to see how you do this in your home – I know I need some ideas! What a beautiful project…

  2. What an incredible campaign! I cant wait to see what you UPCYCLE!!

  3. We’ve been talking a lot about volunteering this summer and ways to give back.

  4. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for next week’s post!

  5. Love finding ways to give back! From recycling to volunteering at the food bank I’m all for teaching the kids how to give back.

  6. Good for you! What a great campaign. We obvi recycle and I’m hoping next year to grow our own veggies.

  7. I consider it my job to raise my wee ones to make a difference! With the empathy and passion that my son is already showing, I think we’re on our way!
