Environmental tips for Kids

raising-children Related Articles for Raising Children
Kids can also do their bit in helping to save the environment. Read these environmental tips for children which you can ask your kids to follow. Kids are often made to feel that they are too small to be given responsibility. Kids when told about the importance of protecting the environment are often eager and keen to help save the environment.


Environmental awareness is the need of the day. Everybody knows that protecting the environment today will prepare for a better tomorrow. Kids too can be taught to do their bit for helping the environment. Nowadays, kids also need to be trained to avoid wasting natural resources and many a times kids too are eager to do their bit.



Teaching Kids to Be Environment Friendly

Here are some environmental tips for kids.

Save Water

Many people just let the water run when they are brushing their teeth or having a bath. Kids should be taught to turn off the tap when soaping or brushing. Parents of children should also practice this as it will show that you too are trying your best to make a difference. Do not let water run while showering and brushing teeth. Another thing your kid can do is take shorter showers. In the same way, kids must be taught to save water while using sinks and in the garden.

Try to Carpool, Walk or take Public Transport

Teach your kids to avoid going to school individually in their cars. The more the number of cars running the more there will be carbon emissions and smog in the air leading to pollution. Arrange for a group of kids living close by to go to school together in one car only. You can also encourage your child to take the bus, walk or cycle up to school. While dropping your kid at her friend’s house or tennis class, try to walk rather than using a car. Walking as much as possible to nearby places rather than using a car or bike will help to keep the air in your neighbourhood clean and unpolluted.

Go easy on Video Games

Video games consume a lot of energy. As you would have noticed, the computer and television feels hot after kids have finished playing video games. Encourage your kids to go out to play in the fresh air or complete their home work rather than playing these video games. Playing video games consumes a whole lot of energy and much more than regular TV or computer usage. Try to keep this activity to a minimum. In this way, kids can save energy!

Also, teach your kids to turn off the computer monitor or switch off the screen when not in use, rather than leaving it switched on for long hours or all through the night.

Switch off Lights when not in use

Teach your kids to switch off lights, fans and other electronic devices when not in use. Many a times, kids leave the fans and lights switched on when they leave a room which results in a lot of wastage of electricity. Since, kids are not yet completely aware and informed about environmental problems they do not know the consequences. Teach your kids to not waste electricity. As a parent also try to buy fluorescent bulbs instead of normal light bulbs because they save three times more energy than the regular light bulbs.

Plant Trees in your Community

Your kids can find an organization that plants trees in your community. Participating in planting trees is a great way to help the environment. If you have a garden, teach your kids to participate in the gardening, by growing plants and watering them everyday. If you do not have a garden, you can have small pot plants in the balcony of your home.

Try to Save Paper

Ask your kids to try to save paper. Try to avoid using paper cups and plates whenever possible. Ask your kids to use cloth towels and rags instead of paper towels and napkins. As a parent also, try to do more work online and store your data on the computer and emails rather than take print outs using paper. Print on both sides of the paper whenever possible. Cutting down on use of paper wherever possible will help to save more trees. Choose to receive printed statements rather than print outs on paper. Use recycled paper. Whenever possible ask your kids to use old magazines, phone books and old newspapers for craft and art work.


Kids and Environment

Kids must be educated about saving the environment at a young age itself. In this way, the awareness is created early and they can also influence other kids to do the same. Global warming, pollution and other environmental concerns are on the rise which is greatly harming the environment. If kids can play a role in helping to save the earth, it will be great and we can together strive towards a cleaner and greener Earth.

Much needed article of the day! Teaching the importance of saving our environment to the kids is necessary today. Teaching alone will not make kids to understand the importance. Giving or explaining with an example will do wonders. Celebrating holy with natural flowers and natural materials will make children to understand the harsh effects of artificial colors. This good initiative was taken in my son’s school Orchids International, Bangalore. I feel proud of my son and his school as he understood the importance of using natural things and at the end, he advised me about it.

Kids are our future. We should teach them about the ways to protect the environment. these tips are really great. Kids should know the three R's namely recycle, reuse and reduce.
