Gentle reminders to help family reuse

I have been taking baby steps toward a much greener life since Sweetpea was born. Many of them don't require buy in or even get noticed by the rest of the family. When I started sending reused containers (yogurt, cottage cheese, etc) with EmDee's lunch, I noticed many of them weren't making it back home for another round. He would forget and throw them in the trash...these fun notes are a gentle reminder to bring home his containers, and also that I love him! :)
How do you help your family participate in your "greening initiatives"?

That's awesome. I love that you have those reminders on there. It's a great idea. Fortunately, my fam has been trained that only I'm qualified to tell what gets tossed, so everything comes home. That includes the banana peels that I'm still trying to figure out how to convince them that this is an exception.
