We celebrate Earth Day today 22nd April ,Monday.
“The world grows smaller and smaller, more and more inter-dependent. Today more than ever before life must be characterised by a sense of universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life.” H.H. the Dalai Lama
We and our children can act thoughtfully and become aware of the many opportunities we each have every day to “help our earth.”
The 3 R’s are Reduce, Reuse and Recycle: When we “RRR,” we save the earth’s precious natural resources.
Every Family can do something to “Go Green”.
Small Steps as to make our world a better place to live now and for our future generations.
In my opinion there is no theory required to teach Kids about Earth Day and going Green. Kids learn watching us and if we follow few small steps such as
#Separating Plastics and Paper from our Trash
#Using your own bags when shopping
#Washing laundry in cold water
#Turn off the water while brushing and doing dishes.
#Turn out the lights when u leave a room.
#Buy Organic produce from local Farmers Market.
#Get out of the house or gym and enjoy a walk in the park.
Ashrith my 4 year old has been following and learning about Recycling from me. Before going to the recycle bin, I show him all the milk bottles and other and allow him trash them in the recycle bin.
My favorite spot for him to learn about various things to recycle is the Target Store. As the picture suggests these bins have logos on it and Ashrith enjoys to tell me what goes into each bin .
These are a few steps, I take to go green,What are your green plans? Any tips and suggestions are welcome.
