Do any of us really realize how many of the things we use each day that are not only harmful to the earth but ourselves and our loved ones? People may not have lived longer lives a couple hundred years ago but in my opinion they lived happier and healthier lives. Change doesn't happen over night and you'll kill yourself if you try to get rid of everything potentially harmful in one day.
What you can do is promise yourself to make one change a month, a week, or even a day if your real ambitious (but only one). My first priority in the last five years has been making these changes for my children. This can be in the things they use/touch daily or things that I use/touch that directly affect them. I am always trying to turn each activity together into a teaching point.
We need to start young teaching our children how to be self sufficient and how to take care of this planet so it will be around for generations to come. When Brighton's Mountain Books asked me to review the book "What's It Like, Living Green? Kids Teaching Kids, by the Way They Live", I was pretty excited to share it with the kids!
The synopsis says, "In What’s It Like Living Green? You’ll learn how other kids live green, along with tips on recycling, reusing and environmental awareness. Learn clean energy ideas as simple as putting on a sweater rather than turning up the heat. You’ll see how kids like you can save the earth. Meet a teenage girl who learned to drive with a car fueled by used cooking grease. Read about a boy who raised funds to build his first well to provide clean water for a whole village in Africa, when he was only seven years old. You will learn simple ways to help the environment, help others, and even earn some money."
You all know me and how I feel about everything being as green friendly as possible so the book was an obvious enjoyment for me. The book discusses everything in child-like terms making it easier to understand the "Why's". Dane and Declan love taking part in the enthusiasm our family shares doing our part for the planet. They share their feelings quite frequently with others when it comes to the environment and it makes me the proudest mother alive!!
