Yes, kids just keep it simple. Here are some of their ideas about how to care for our earth.
- Eat REAL FOOD no more processed junk/ snack foods! It is better for your body and for our Earth!
- Don’t waste food. Transporting food from the field, to the processing plant, to the grocery store, then to your house takes a lot of energy and creates a lot of carbon emissions.
- Ask your parents to turn off the car while waiting in line to pick you up. 10% of all gas is wasted idling. After only 10 seconds you use less gas turning the ignition off.
- Eat locally grown food and don’t burn trash. Try to drive less to save gas and reduce pollution. Ride our bike to school, sports or work (for your mom and dad). Use an electric car. Walk to school.
All these ideas were submitted from the children who live in the United States and were posted on www.earthsaversclubforkids.com. Thank you, kids!
