Great Children’s Books About Environmental Protection and Green Living

Back in 2010, Denise Salmon a trained Children’s writer and Creative writer, who became an author; began thinking about the future of the planet. She thought of the problems people would face if pollution reduction was not handled in a better way. She also thought about the unemployment problem that is becoming worse each day. This caused her to wonder if a connection between job creation and better waste management could be made. 

With the increased production of plastic products, electronic devices and other things that will be sent to landfills to burn; and not enough talk about environmental protection going on in the right places. She thought Environmental education for children was becoming increasingly important.

How Recycling Plastic Creates Jobs

However,it wasn’t long before she realized that poor people could benefit in many ways from recycling. If manufacturers of plastic and the other things that are now polluting the environment, could simply contribute to a pollution reduction plan in more countries.

She was unable to find anyone to share her thoughts with and the plastic pollution problem continued getting worse. Eventually scientists discovered micro plastic in water, air and food. Now there are more recycling programs in many places all over the world, (even though they are not enough). Poor people are now earning when they collect plastic bottles and take them to the recycling centres in their area. The plastic pollution reduction plan is working in a great way.

The plastic bottles that are collected, processed and used to make new products. This has caused increased job creation people are quite happy with the money they earn. The workers who are busy washing the bottles, those who are processing them and the ones who are making new products with them are also content with their jobs. They know they are doing something great for the environment and themselves.

How More Contribution is Made to Plastic Pollution Reduction

She decided to make a contribution to the plastic pollution reduction program in her own way. She wrote 16 children’s books for environmental education to help turn kids into young environmentalists. This will cause an increase in their sense of connection and duty to the beauty of their environment in a number of ways. Almost thirteen years later, the urgency to teach children about the environmental issues and their solutions is just as relevant and even more pressing; as the number of products we use to pollute the Earth has increased with the growth of technology and new devices. So she is promoting her eco-kids project again for 2023. This time, a book that was reviewed and approved by the Ministry of Education is included here. 

For parents who are still hesitant about where or how to start telling their children about the best way to prepare for the future. The perfect solution is here, parents should just start giving their children the books about environmental protection that were written for them. They are filled with the eco-friendly tips and the environmental protection messages.  It’s okay for parents to be learning along with children,  many of the books she recommended are the ones that are written in simple language. If a parent also enjoys reading the books, they can not only talk to their child about environmental protection, but they don’t mind reading it even more than once, until they see a change in behavior.
