Kids’ brains are like sponges when they’re young, quickly picking up on what’s going on around them. So it’s a great time to start them off on a lifelong journey of Earth stewardship. If you’re not sure where to begin, you’ve come to the right place. Here are a few ways you can encourage your child’s love for the environment at an early age.
Spend more time outdoors. Go on bike rides, take ‘em hiking, encourage them to play outside after school — give them opportunities to appreciate nature in all of its glory.
Teach them how to garden. Gardening not only gets your kids to spend more time appreciating nature, it also teaches them about the hard work and patience that goes into growing food.
Teach them how to recycle. Showing your kids the ins and outs of recycling teaches them how to make eco-friendly choices at home and how to be less wasteful in general.
Show them how to save and conserve resources. Teaching your kids to shower instead of take baths because it saves water and to turn off lights in rooms they’re not in shows them how to make choices that are good for the planet.

Educational toys teach kids a variety of important tools to help them succeed in life. These toys are generally entertaining – but not in a superficial way – as they impart knowledge through play. There are plenty of educational gifts for kids that are also eco-friendly for the planet too.
When picking out educational gifts for kids, take note of where their interests are. Do they love science and gardening? Consider getting them a grow kit that bolsters their love of nature and biology. Maybe the kid in your life loves art and self-expression. Natural hair chalk is a great eco-friendly gift for kids who love to create.
