FOR KIDS

Reduce It!  When you use less of something, you do a good thing for the Earth. Turn off the water while you brush your teeth – leaving it on for the 2 minutes can waste up to five gallons of water a day!

Every once and a while leave the yellow ducks a night to sleep and take a shower instead of a bath, because it uses less water.   Plus, it uses less fuel since your house uses fuel to run the water heater that warmed up the water.

Turn off the light every time you leave your room (nightlights are still there to help you find your way to mom or dads room) .

Take your lunch in a reusable lunch box (choose wisely, this must last the whole year).

Never ever litter!

Collect cans or plastic bottles to redeem for cash to spend on a treat.  Did you know that recycling just one aluminum can will save enough energy to watch TV for 3 hours (is that a day’s worth or a week’s worth of TV for you)?

Donate old toys for another little boy or girl to play with – don’t throw them away. Every time you get a toy, it’s time to donate one!

Use both sides of paper to draw, color or doodle.
