How to Incorporate Sustainability in Kids’ Lives

Mon, Feb 08, 2021

By Karah St. Preux


In a world that is increasingly becoming in danger, it is incredibly important to discuss the topic of sustainability with kids. Although ‘sustainability’ is a word that seemed to have entered our vocabulary not too long ago, there are plenty of ways that we implemented sustainability in our lives when we were kids. There are so many types of activities that will teach kids about the importance of going green, and they can even be fun for the whole family! What are some fun ways to teach kids about sustainability? 

  1. The 3 R’s 

One of my earliest memories of learning about sustainability was being taught about reducing, reusing, and recycling. These 3 R’s have the power to teach kids about going green in a simple way. By showing kids that reducing the amount of trash we produce, and recycling plastics and cardboards and reusing bags, they will be able to learn at a young age that they have the ability to make a difference. Labeling different recycling bins and explaining the process will make it fun and easy for everyone involved!

 

      2. Opt for Eco-Friendly Toys

There are so many eco-friendly toys available on the market for parents, but do you know what to look for? It’s best to avoid toys made of plastic and toys that smell. If a toy smells fruity that may mean it contains phthalates which are known to be endocrine disruptors. It’s best to go for wooden toys because they tend to be most natural. Additionally, it’s best to look for toys that clearly state they are made with non-toxic dyes, fabrics, and are made without pesticides.

      3. Plant Outside

Nothing teaches kids more about going green than planting. By planting trees, flowers, and other types of plants- kids will be able to learn about the process of how life grows as well as get an appreciation for the outdoors. Possibly creating your own garden and planting fruits and vegetables to eat will be the perfect way to teach about sustainability.
