Tips for Parents
In Honor of Earth Day
Earth Day is April 22. Looking for some interesting environmental info to share with your student on this occasion? Here are some options:
- Ecological Footprints. See what kind of impact you're each having on the planet by figuring out your ecological footprint at www.earthday.net/footprint/index.html.
- Sustainable Suppers. What is this "eating local" thing all about? Check out the great resources at www.sustainabletable.org.
- Earth Day Quotes. Find some good ones to share at www. quotegarden.com/ earth-day.html.
- The Great Stuff Conundrum. Check out The Story of Stuff at www.storyofstuff. com. It's a 20-minute web video about our production and consumption patterns.
As students are getting ready to consolidate their stuff before moving home, it could be a good reminder of ways to create a more sustainable, environmentally-friendly world.
Happy Earth Day to you!
