Teaching your Children to be Environmentally Conscious

Children are not too young to learn about saving the planet. You can teach them how to be careful of the environment and how their actions have a direct bearing on the health of all life on earth.

If you want to change the way you live by “going green” or at the least, learning to waste less and live a more environmentally sound life, here are some suggestions. Remember, with kids, consistency is the key.

Ways for Kids to become Environmentally Conscious

Recycle trash – Items like plastic stay in the landfill indefinitely. When they begin to break down it could poison the water table and make people sick.

By separating items that are labeled as recyclable, they can be reused in other ways that don’t harm the environment.

Set up a recycling station in your home for kids to use. Let them bag up each set of recyclable goods to put at the curb on trash day.

Use less water – Water is abundant but we do pay for it. The more we use, the more we have to pay for. Teach kids to use the dishwasher to clean the dishes.

Also, time showers so very little water is wasted. Another suggestion is to turn off the water when lathering up and also when brushing your teeth.

Set an example – When you see trash, pick it up. If you are taking a shower, be mindful of how long you are taking. Take every chance to teach by example instead of always being preachy to your children.

Use reusable shopping bags – Kids can help you bag groceries using cloth bags that you keep in your car. It also helps cut down on plastic bags.

Hold a garage sale – Instead of throwing away items you no longer use, try and sell them. You can use the extra money for a family activity.

Teach them about the environment – As you talk about the planet and that it is our responsibility to keep it healthy, your kids may come up with suggestions of what they can do to contribute.

Take a tour – See if the local recycling center holds tours. Science centers hold classes on pollution and nature to teach kids about the earth.

Visit the farmer’s market – Locally grown produce is fun to pick and it supports the environment. You can also purchase plants for your home that can help keep the air clean.

Plant trees – Trees exchange carbon dioxide for oxygen. You can spend time as a family and also help the environment. Fruit trees can also provide healthy food for everyone.

Kids can learn at any age how to help the environment. Consistency is the key to making a lifelong impact.

You are a life Saver!!

I recently discovered this site and I can tell you that my life has not been the same. I now come here EVERYDAY and spend at least 1 hour.

I used to spend that time browsing online fashion and beauty magazine which just means that I spend more. Now I have replaced that habit with coming here.

In future I will think about contributing articles as well. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!! and God bless"
