Our planet, our kids world, do something!

Updated: Apr 26


Sustainable energy? Recycling? Innovation with imagination, what are you doing in your home to teach your children??


Did you know that there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050? Or that 100 million animals die each year from plastic debris in the ocean? Or that 100,000 marine animals dies a year from becoming tangled in plastic? Or that when you eat fish you have also consumed plastics because micro plastics enter our bodies? Or that 50 billion water bottles are sold in the US each year, averaging about 13 bottles per month for every person?


What can we all do?

  1. find alternatives for single use plastics by bringing reusable bags to the grocery store and use a travel mug when getting a drink.

  2. avoid products that contain microbes like facial scrubs, toothpaste and hand sanitizer. Try using natural products with natural ex-foliants such as oatmeal or salt.

  3. If you see plastic litter, pick it up and recycle it or start a Bach pick up or local park clean-up.

Earth Day has inspired countries to start environmentally beneficial initiatives.

For example, on Earth Day in 2012, more than 100,000 people in China rode their bikes in order to reduce CO2 emissions and highlight the amount of pollution emitted from cars.




Teach your children to care about each other, about their planet and about kindness. Find a school that believes in these sustainable values.
