Most parents try to raise their children to be upstanding members of society. They teach them to share their toys, play nicely with others, use their manners, and, in general, just be nice.
But what about teaching them about sustainability, the environment, and how to care for the planet? There is plenty of merit in teaching them how to care about where they live as well as the other people who share the earth with them. Read on to learn what could be worth sharing with your kids to benefit them and the environment.
Having the skill and knowledge to recycle is not something you are born with. It’s a learned ability that takes encouragement from parents and society. From an early age, teach your children about the importance of placing recyclable products in the recycling bin and waste in the trash bin. Print out infographics on what can go in which bin, and actively encourage them to care about what ends up in the rubbish bin.
