Unless we pass on environmental stewardship to the next generation, our efforts die with us. And never too young…..
Here’s a sweet photo of three-year-old William Mosley collecting rubbish on the beach, so disgusted was he by “very silly humans” dropping litter in the streets and everywhere. You can read his story here.
At this age, children are enthusiastic and absorb new ideas like sponges. Live green in your family today and it becomes a way of life for these adults of tomorrow.
But teenagers are every bit as fun to recruit for the green drive: they are vociferous, outspoken and looking for crusades. Here are four fun things you could do with teenagers:
- Visit eco-restaurants for bonding time. Read our Green Spaces review for ideas.
- Experiment with making green skincare products.
- Repurpose old clothes together. We made a cloth shopping bag from a holey old dress!
- Beach clean-ups and BBQ on the beach. We all love a good party. Please follow us here and on Facebook to be kept informed of our forthcoming party (in Sept/Oct).
