Sustainability is too important to be ignored by parents and teachers as the plan for a great future for children will give them hope. Actively encouraging children to learn more about environmental protection in many ways has been made simple, since information about environmental solutions for plastic pollution and other environmental issues were written about in children’s books. Parents can easily give these eco-friendly books to kids and they can also show them what they are doing as more recycling and composting, and other similar activities are being done. Kids will be learning how to live in a sustainable way. They will be willing to assist parents or teachers and begin developing the eco-friendly habits that will cause them to reduce pollution and be ready to live in a healthy environment.
1.The importance of recycling and composting
Recycling causes less waste to get to landfills to be burned. This will lead to a reduction in the amount of greenhouse gases that is released in the atmosphere. Recycling also causes a reduction in the number of unemployed people in countries, as recycling centres will always be in need of added help to separate waste and do other jobs before and after the waste is processed. Our children can begin learning about green living as they find many ways to protect Nature and save the planet.
2. Ways to Conserve Water and Energy
Clothes can be handwashed and dried on a clothesline outside whenever it is possible. Added to that the water used for washing can be used to water the lawn or the plants when you’re done. As we reduce energy and water use. We can reduce the volume of water used when dishes are being washed, if we keep the tap turned off before we are ready to rinse them, when a dishwasher is not being used. When children are told about the importance of conservation and they see us doing more to conserve, they will be prepared to go green and face the future with a smile.
3. Tips for Reducing Plastic Waste
Reducing plastic waste by using reusable water bottles, utensils, plates, cups etc. is always a great idea. Taking your own containers to supermarkets that are interested in using less plastic packaging is another great idea. You will be allowed to fill your containers with rice, cornmeal and other similar food items we normally buy in plastic packaging before. Large plastic bottles can be cut and used when we plant our veggies or other plants also. Children can be encouraged to make craft items with plastic waste as they reduce plastic waste and prepare for a green future.
4. The benefits of using public transportation
Biking or walking instead of driving is a great idea when you are not going on a long journey. We also get a chance to be much more active when we take public transportation and walk to get to our destinations. We will be saving money and the planet when we make these small adjustments in the way we travel. Air pollution and our fuel consumption will be reduced.
5. The Impact of Climate Change on Ecosystems and Wildlife
When ecosystems are destroyed, the fish, lobsters and other marine creatures we would normally eat, after they are caught in the oceans will be reduced. Eventually we will not get the nutrients we need to keep us healthy; when we do nothing about Climate Change and ecosystems are destroyed. The animals that are living in the wild are adversely affected by the loss of their homes, they have no food, no home and no water. Environmental education for children is more important in these times as we try to live in a sustainable way. We all can benefit from living sustainably and planning for a green future.
6. The benefits of using renewable energy sources
Renewable energy sources have caused many individuals to spend and invest in better ways. They have improved the quality of their lives after they reduce energy bills. The reduction in oil spills caused by the transportation of oil is also good for the environment and wild life. Telling children about the clean renewable energy sources is a great idea. They can begin thinking about making great plans for their future when they are informed.
7. The Dangers of Pollution and How to Prevent it
Air pollution has been causing deaths in some places as people suffer from respiratory diseases after years of inhaling toxins. Many sea creatures die when rivers and oceans are polluted with plastic and toxic chemicals released by factories. Micro plastic is now becoming a huge problem as it is being swallowed by the fish and the crustaceans we eat. This has caused micro plastic to be ingested by us. It is possible that research will show that our health is being affected by it. Micro plastic is also in the air we breathe as well. We should reduce the amount of plastic and pollutants we use each day, as we work towards living in a sustainable way. There are many environmental solutions such as reusing, reducing and recycling plastic, using electrical vehicles, conserving our natural resources and reducing the amount of waste that gets to landfills.
8.The importance of preserving natural habitats
We should protect endangered species and do more conservation as we plan for a green future. Many animals have gone extinct and we are not sure about what impact there absense will have on our lives. There are conservation efforts happening to protect the lives of Bees because the food shortage crisis could become much worse if these pollinators went extinct. Let us do more to protect the environment because without food we could be the next specie to disappear.
9. The benefits of eating locally grown and organic food
Eating organic food instead of the food that is grown with chemical fertilizers and pesticides is much better for our health. The chemicals used to keep insects away from plants can be damaging to our health when ingested. When we protect our health we are also protecting our wealth, as some illnesses are very costly and they can wipe out our finances if we should ever be stricken by them. It is best if we eat organic food and remain healthy.
Preparing for the future in the best way, must include environmental education for children, even though we all need to plan for a bright future together. Younger children will benefit from more simplified explanations and visuals, while older children may be interested in more in-depth discussions and research projects. Adults have a responsibility towards children, they need to help them as they prepare for the green future in the best way. The eco-kids project is ready to educate and inspire children to be mindful of their impact on the environment and to make sustainable choices in their daily lives.
