Taking Small Steps; Making a Huge Difference
Most of us are not paying attention and growing habits that are affecting the environment in a negative ways. It is time to stop. We can't stand silent. We know that we should start somewhere and that we are part of the solution not the problem.
For that reason, change will start with the young. Do you think that children can’t make a difference? Not so. Children are aware of serious environmental problems around them. They decided to change these bad habits into more environment friendly ones. They promised to share it not only with friends at school, but also with their families and friends outside school.
There are dozens of small things you and your children can do every day to save energy and keep the world cleaner and greener. At school, students learned that they can do little things, like:
- Turning off the lights and switching off the fan before leaving the classroom so as not to waste energy
- Closing the water when brushing your teeth so as not to keep water running
- Throwing the trash in the wastebasket so as not to litter the ground
- Being aware of the importance of recycling and throwing objects that will be recycled in the waste basket or boxes that are particular for each item
Keep in mind that if your child develops good habits now, he/she will keep as he/she grows.
