This Earth Day, April 22, take the time to teach your kids about how THEY can make a difference… a real difference.
Together, you can calculate your ecological footprint on the earth and see how much of an impact your family is making. More importantly, you can then work together to find ways for your family to tread a little more lightly on our planet.
What a great way to help your children truly understand the meaning of going green.
The Earth Day Network Footprint Calculator helps you find out many many planets it takes to support your lifestyle. It’s fun, interactive and very cool. Kids, and grown-ups, will love it.
MyFootprint.org is another great site where you can how big your footprint is. It really teaches your kids that everything people do has consequences on the earth. This calculator is also very interactive and the kids will love it. At the same time, they’ll learn valuable lessons.
This week it’s all about “going green”, but teaching your kids to “be green” all the time is a lesson they should learn from an early age. Hop on the bandwagon if you haven’t already and get your kids excited about it. Let their young minds soak it all up and lead the way for your family.
Before you know it, they will be reminding you to turn off the lights.
