Greanwold's Green World for Kids
Parents and kids (and others). Good news! As carbon dioxide continues to build in the atmosphere — thanks to the burning of fossil fuels — scientists are busy figuring out how life on earth is adapting to its effects.
And now, new research reinforces the idea that the world’s plant life is adjusting in a subtle, but deeply significant, way. In other words, mother nature is smarter than we think.
Parents! If you are interested in a more livable future for your children, with your help they can send us their idea of a livable world and if published, will win a Greanwold limited edition T-shirt.
Think Green, Please
A CHILD'S IDEA OF SUSTAINABILITY
Taking care of the planet and its creatures
Something that is good for everyone Loving and caring for our planet and others
Sharing what we have with others and not taking more than our share
Thinking about what you need rather than taking what you want
Making the world a better place for the future Living together peacefully
Being nice to all of your neighbours including the trees
Making rules we can all follow
Taking care of the air, water, land and those who live there
One thing leads to another, then another.
Let’s make the chain good.
Sustainability is not just cleaning up your own room – it’s about keeping tidy an even bigger room that belongs to everyone!
Greanwold's Green World is an important part of Greanwold's World. That is why Greanwold is called "Grean"-"Wold". Grean is the Minosaur way of spelling "green". Wold is an ancient word for undeveloped rolling hills. Minosaurs believe in kids and in their rights and one of the rights that kids all over the world have is the right to a healthy planet. Sustainability isn’t just for adults: Kids must learn about environmental issues and think about the consequences of purchases, living choices and behaviors, just as adults must do! While learning to be green can be a challenge, it’s one that parents must definitely share with their children.
Start doing things differently around the house. Recycling, composting or using non-toxic household cleaners are first steps. Parents need to tell children at an early age why these are important issues. When adults explain the significance of choices, children can begin to understand the impact human beings have on the future of planet earth.
