Our planet is truly a magnificent place that provides environment to create the ideal conditions for life. It’s perfect, but we all know that it’s in trouble.
Do you know there might not be much world left for our children to pass onto theirs?
Wherever you look, nature is under assault and if we don’t take steps now to try and repair the damage, there might not be much of a world left for our children to pass onto theirs.
Now Since today is Earth day, let’s try to educate and spread awareness among children regarding environmental protection.
Make lifestyle changes
Instil the idea of 3 R’s (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) rule in your children. Use Earth Day as your starting point and put active plans in place for the entire year.
Reduce- Teach your children about conserving electricity, water and reducing fuel emissions
Reuse- reuse things around the house, donate unused items, buy or accept secondhand items whenever possible.
Recycle-Things like paper, plastic & aluminum can often be brought to the grocery store for recycling.
Plant a tree
Robert Brault once said, “Why try to explain miracles to your kids when you can just have them plant a garden.” And we couldn’t agree more! Even if they are very little, planting things like carrots, potatoes and beans are great because they are all easy to plant and easy to care for.
Arrange an Earth Day event
Organize a park or community clean-up event. Pick up littered public areas and if possible lay grass or plant flowers and trees where the agriculture has died.
Throw an Earth Day party
Go on a nature hike, watch movies like Dr. Seuss' The Lorax, cook a meal from organic, locally grown fruits and vegetables — then finish it off with a fun Earth Day dessert.
Children are the future and if we can educate our children about the importance of caring for our planet through family fun and play, we can only hope they will continue the cycle with future generations. The goal here is not to only celebrate a single day but to inculcate a habit that leads them to a healthy and clean Earth.
