As a of of the 1980s, I grew up in a time where the environment, sustainability and our responsibility to the planet was something still taught at length in school. We learned all about the three Rs – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. We learned about growing plants, we took trips to zoos and farms, we even had an earthworm farm! I grew beans in class, had a pet mealworm to care for and at one point we even had chicks we saw hatch from eggs in an incubator at the front of our class.
It is obvious that teaching children how to be good stewards of our planet is the best way to ensure we protect our planet and hopefully repair the damage we have already done to it.
I am already starting this with my girls. This year we are growing tomato plants in our backyard that Keira helped plant from seeds. We have 10 plants growing at this point and she is very enthusiastic about seeing how the plants grow.
What better way to get kids interested about the environment we live in than to get them hands on with it.
It turns out that EnviroKids couldn’t agree more! EnviroKids believe they can help save the world one bite at a time by donating 1% of sales to animal conservation groups like the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund and the Australian Koala Foundation. They also make only gluten free, organic, whole grain food products with tons of kid-appeal.
