Eco Super Heros

Help your kids live green.

The 3 R's never get old:

Recycle
Teach them to recycle household items.
(They get to help save the world every time they throw something into the recycling bin.)
Donate gentle used goods to a local thrift store or charity.

Reuse
Reuse cast off items to create craft projects.
Make stuff animals from old t-shirts, socks or single gloves.

Reduce
Repair broken toys and mend clothing rather than replacing them.
Teach your children the value of living simply and enjoying what they already have.
Create new toys & make games together instead of shopping for them.
Enjoy nature walks as entertainment.
