#1: Choose a Green School

Encouraging your child to live an eco-lifestyle is much easier if your child attends a green school. My son’s school is a LEED certified school, so the school does a lot on its own to stay green. The school’s green options have only piqued my son’s interest in sustainable living. He is always telling me that we need lights in our home that only turn on when you enter the room or that we need to install a solar or water harvesting system. It encourages him to think of other ways to incorporate green living into our daily lives.

#2: Encourage Green Involvement

Children learn by example; and many children will immediately emulate the actions of their peers. When you instill green ideas and actions in your children from an early age, they will already be stewards of the earth before they start school. Your children can become the environmental leaders of tomorrow, starting with the sustainable innovation that they help develop within their schools as children.
