Loving Planet Earth

CLEANUP EARTH

Let's take care of the planet earth?

 

Caring for the planet is a responsibility we all share.

Each person who inhabits the Planet Earth must help preserve the environment so that in the future,

the next generations who will inhabit our world will not suffer from the carelessness that we can cause ourselves.

Whatever man destroys, one day he will have the responsibility to rebuild, that is in the law of nature!

In this project, we teach kids

to care about the environment

How can we help responsibly?

1. SAVE water
  • When brushing your teeth, shut off the water while it's not in use.

  • Teach children about water-saver gardening through plant selection.

  • Show them how to water a lawn and garden properly.

2. Flick the switch
  • Turn off the light when you leave the room.

  • Turn off the TV if no one is watching it.

  • Finally, try turning off the air conditioner if the summer’s not too hot.

3. Close the door
  • Keep doors to the outside closed so you won’t let air conditioning or heat escape.

  • Don’t leave the refrigerator door open for too long while deciding what to eat.

4. Start a Garden
  • Start simple, with window-box herbs.

  • In addition, dedicate a section of your backyard to grow broccoli, lettuce, tomatoes, and much more.

  • Finally, involve the kids in cooking the harvest.

5. Avoid disposables
  • Use recyclable containers when packing lunchboxes.

  • Also, use cloth napkins with dinner.

  • Carry a hankie instead of paper tissues.

6. Recycle
  • Teach children what can be recycled instead of becoming household waste.

  • Have kids put old homework in the paper bin & yogurt containers in the plastic bin.

  • “Complete the circle” by buying products made with recycled ingredients such as paper.

7. Reuse
  • Clean out jam or jelly jars and reuse them as drinking glasses.

  • Use empty paper towel rolls in your kids’ next art project.

  • Turn empty plastic containers with tight-fitting lids into under-sink compost bins.

8. Compost
  • Teach kids what can and can’t be used for garden compost.

  • Have them the kids sort the food waste.

  • Show them the compost process as it happens

  • Let them use the fertilizer in their window boxes and garden.

9. Walk or bike
  • Lead by example: Not all trips needs to be taken by car.

  • Go for walks together as a family after dinner.

  • And, when kids get older, let them walk or take a bike to school, to friends’ houses or to the store.

10. Give “experience” gifts
  • Toys break or kids quickly get tired of them and they end up in the landfill.

  • Instead, take the kids rock climbing or camping.

  • Finally, museum, art institute and science center memberships make great family gifts– and future memories.

  • Check out this blog for more great ideas on how to give great “experience.

11. plant a tree

It may seem cliché, but trees, in addition to providing us with that relieving shade, bring numerous benefits. They can decrease air pollution, help control temperature and humidity. A tree can last approximately 4800 years and in just one year, it inhales an average of 12 kg of carbon dioxide and emits enough oxygen for a family of four for at least 12 months. The planting of trees is one of the main recommendations of experts to combat global warming.

12. prefer clean transport

Pollution indirectly kills several people a year, aggravating and accelerating problems such as heart attack, stroke, pneumonia, asthma and lung cancer. 90% of pollutant emissions are caused by motor vehicles.

In addition to saving time with commuting, the savings go into the pocket too. Have you ever thought how many factors are connected with the day to day for those who choose the car? Fuel, parking, insurance, taxes, oil change, maintenance, body shop, painting refinishing…. And so on!

13. suspend the use of plastic bags and straws

A few minutes in the hand or in the mouth and more than a hundred years in the oceans. This is a shocking comparison when using a straw or plastic bag in relation to the time it takes to decompose at sea.

There are different methods to help the environment. Metal straws, biodegradable cotton swabs and sustainable bags are already realities. Shall we join the new trends together and save the aquatic animals?
