Are you eco-conscious or eco-subconscious?
Did you know we use our conscious mind only 5% of the time and 95% of the time, our life is controlled by our subconscious? So if you think being eco-conscious is good enough, then you’d better think again!
We’ve got only 8 years to cut our global emissions in half, so 5% conscious is not going to get us anywhere. We need a generation of eco-subconscious citizens on Earth to make that change happen.
And that’s where we come in. We know the subconscious mind learns in the first seven years of our life, mostly through observing when it’s in downloading behaviour. So, through our very own 6E model for early childhood education, we Entertain, Engage and Educate children and we help them Explore and Experiment and of course Empower them to become eco-warriors, not only consciously but also subconsciously. That’s what we call eco-subconscious.
And of course, we will neither leave young ones after the age of seven nor we will leave the adults! As we’ve done in the past 12 years, we keep helping everyone to stay eco-conscious and even become eco-subconscious. We do this through the process of habituation which means repeating things over and over again as that is the way the subconscious mind learns.
And we are certain that we, together, can make the change happen because the subconscious mind is a million times more powerful than the conscious mind.
So let’s heal the world, make it a better place for YOU and for ME and for the future generations!
What We Do
We at MindYourFootprint, believe in children and their power. And we agree with the wise-man who said “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. However we are very aware that education can become boring for the little ones hence we created our 6E model, Entertain, Engage, Educate, Explore, Experiment and Empower which is our way to educate children very gently while they are having fun. Imagine the children playing with toys, puzzles and games, learning something new, feeling empowered and eventually becoming eco-warriors.
In the past 12 years we’ve contributed to many campaigns, including Earth Hour, Earth Day, World Environment Day and Animal Day. We have proven ourselves to be at the forefront of this clean, green movement. We believe in raising awareness of issues such as Climate Crisis, access to clean water, global warming, healthy lifestyles including eating less meat (or preferably vegetarian or vegan diets) and animal endangerment. Our aim is to safeguard the Earth for future generations.

Footkin aka Foot Fella
Footkin aka Foot Fella is our ambassador. Hailing from the peaceful planet of Marchoon, he is a caring individual who loves Earth as much as he loves his own home. Using Footkin to develop children’s imagination, we have been able to speak directly to children on environmental issues and to educate them so that they can become the Eco-warriors of the future.
Footkin has been there when we have talked to children about energy conservation, water conservation, endangered animals and waste management. With his very own website and a series of books, games and videos, Footkin gets to the heart of issues for children and really helps them to engage.
All schools, whether or not you are already involved in sustainability initiatives such as Eco-Schools, Green Ribbon Schools or any holistic approach or sustainability education initiative are welcome to take advantage of our free educational resources resources. These include videos, puzzles, games and activity books with their lesson plans on every environmental topic. We can even ask Footkin if he could visit your school to talk to your pupils directly. We’ve done it many times and it’s been very successful and popular. Here you may find a case case study of one of many workshops we’ve done in the past.
You are welcome to use our resources to help your children understand environmental issues, especially those you can get involved in too, like saving water, recycling and saving energy. Footkin has a range of colouring pages, dot to dots and puzzles to play giving your children (and you!) hours of fun. You can play the games on the Play section of the Footkin website and you can download the activity books here on the resource page.
So we decided to start designing our own toys and games.
Our toys are made of sustainable and eco-friendly materials. We make sure our suppliers are ethical and have values the same as ours and that they take care of their employees and the environment. Every toy is educational and promotes a good cause mostly around an environmental issue.
