10 Ways Kids Can Help Save the Planet

Click here for 10 Ways Kids Can Help 
Save the Planet.  

As a parent, go over with your child(ren) the
ten ways to help save the planet.  As
caretakers of the world we live in, God would
have us love it and care for it.  These ten ways
can help in the process of saving the planet. 
Decide on one or more ways that you can do
as a family to help care for the planet and carry
out your decision.  (Try it for one day, one week,
or more.)  Discuss with your child(ren) how
they feel about what they are doing. Is it hard? 
Does it make them feel good?  Is it important to
continue? Do they feel that they are caring for
the planet? Etc.
