“Every human being is important and all human beings owe something to their fellow inhabitants of this planet.” ~ Wallace Campbell
Today is Earth Day and it is also Volunteer Week! Eat, Play, Learn Books are being developed for the newest generation of readers with an eye on sustainability. Electronic publishing is the most earth-friendly method of producing media content.
E-books (also called electronic or digital publishing) save trees and waste that comes with manufacturing paper. A reduction in pollutants that come with ink, used in printing, is an important benefit, also.
Children are being taught in school to be good stewards of the earth. More classroom teachers are beginning to using e-books to share lessons in every subject.
Parents, reinforce values at home, by taking good care of the environment by recycling and upcycling waste. Teach your children to turn off lights, reduce water usage and to consume only what is really needed and perhaps, grow a small garden. Here are other ideas for a zero waste home. http://zerowastehome.blogspot.com/p/tips.html
Earth Day is a perfect time to take your children outdoors to play. Take along a bag to pick up trash in your immediate neighborhood or your favorite park. Reward your little volunteers with a healthy, wholesome snack so they don’t run out of energy.
Get outdoors today and enjoy the fresh air! Happy Earth Day, everybody!
