5 Simple Ways to Teach Kids to Be Environmentally Responsible

When you think about how to be environmentally responsible, you are likely to think about big picture ideas such as installing solar panels on a home or purchasing a hybrid car. While there is nothing wrong with these notions, you have to start with more basic principles for kids.

Here are five simple ways to teach kids responsible practices that will start them on the path to making environmentally conscious choices throughout their lives.

  1. Conserve water. As every kid uses water every day, this is a very simple place to start. Think about practical applications such as brushing their teeth and washing the dishes. Encourage children to turn off the water any time they don't need it and to keep the water running for as short of a time period as they can.

  2. Switch to reusable items whenever possible. There are so many items that we use on a daily basis that we can substitute for reusable items. For example, when kids pack their own snacks for school, have them use Tupperware containers instead of Ziploc bags.

  3. Recycle. If you live in an area that has a community recycling program, it is easy to get kids into the habit of adding their own trash items to the recycling bin. If you have to sort the items, make it a simple job for kids by providing separate bins for different items i.e. one bin for cans, one for newspapers. You can also teach kids the importance of buying recycled products such as printer paper made from recycled paper.

  4. Walk or bike. Walking and biking are great forms of exercise as well as transportation. If kids have the ability to walk or bike to school or other locations in the neighborhood i.e. to a friend's house or a local store in a safe manner, encourage them to make use of these options.

  5. Garden and compost. Set up a vegetable and herb garden in the backyard and allow kids to take ownership of it with personal chores. You can also set up a compost pile for leftover kitchen scraps and other items that decompose easily.
