The earth is an amazing place full of thousands of creatures and pleasant landscapes. Everyday that nature is being weakened by detrimental pollutants that are contained in the air. Slowly people are beginning to realize the troubles in the world and the contrasting ways that we are able to assist to fix it at our house.

One of the greatest things that we have the ability to do is to recycle. For years we have been told that when we do this we are reducing the amount of items that are being wasted. Too many items are being thrown into the landfill where it rests for hundreds of years unable to decay. This is a waste of space and can release detrimental pollutants into the air and earth.

It is important that we do our part to make the world a better place and to teach our kids why we will do this. Install a separate trash can for plastics and remind your kids what to throw into here. Many may think it is futile and might ‘forget’ to do it.

The easiest way to instruct them is to show them documentaries on how the earth is slowly being broken by our selfish habits. You may even need to take them to museums that speak about it in detail and have them write about why it is significant.

One of the strongest ways that I have seen many families work with their kids is to put together a compost trash bin in the backyard. They will throw food scraps into it and after a week or more they will have each child utilize it to grow something of their choosing. This is a great way for them to discover how amazing it is be to take something old and produce something new.
