Teaching Families To Care For Mother Earth This Mother's Day

Care About The Planet. Everyone And Everything On It!

Why are we not getting the message to care for Earth? Learn the importance
Why are we not getting the message to care for Earth?
It's been Planetpals goal for 20 years to teach kids to learn to care about Earth by caring for it! Like all living things, it needs nurturing and love.  

But, look around you and what do you see?  Bottles and trash on roadways, beaches, parks.  Go to any popular event and watch when people leave, how much is left behind?  Very few people are picking up after themselves! 

Corporations are to blame, too! As packages get smaller and smaller to keep prices down, we have more package waste. Much of it plastics. It all lands on Earth and in our water!

Do we live in a society where we are all oblivious to it? That's a scary thought. Let's teach ourselves and our children the importance of being pro-active. 

Teach them by example!

Teach The 4”R’s” and Paint Your School Bright GREEN

Teach the 4”R’s” and paint your school bright GREEN
There are so many great ways to have a greener school yearl. This is Planetpals top ten list of SIMPLE ideas you can implement in your school, in no time, and with no cost!  All the while, encouraging GREEN habits, pro-active solutions and teaching the 4 “r’s”. 
1. Reusable Containers
Encourage everyone to use reusable containers to hold their snacks, drinks and lunches - so that no plastic or paper has to be thrown away. This is a great way to REDUCE!
2. Scrap Paper Box
Keep a scrap paper box in a convenient location. Encourage everyone to use both sides of the paper. This is a great way to Renew!
3. Ecology Craft Box
So many of the items normally bound for the garbage actually make wonderful craft materials.  Boxes, tissue paper, string, and plastic bottles are some of the items kids can use to make great projects. This is a great way to recycle!
4. School supply SWAP
Organize a school supply swap or have a swap box in the classroom for unused school supplies and books. This is a great way to REDUCE!
5. Book Swap:
Encourage additional reading! Organize a one-day book swap or have a “free book” bookcase in the classroom.This is a great way to REUSE!
 6. Organize a Planetpals “Walking School Bus” or Car Pool:
If kids live close to school, we love this idea.  Kids can learn to save energy and gas by using alternative means of transportation such as bicycle, walk or ride sharing. This is a great way to REDUCE! Learn more
7. Get Your Whole School to Recycle. Start a Planetpals ECO PATROL
Planetpals ECO PATROL is a great way to encourage kids In school. This is a great project for your class. if your school does not already have a recycling program in place.  If your school already recycles, see if your class can improve the current system. This is a great way to RECYCLE!
8.  Recycle Fundraisers: 
Good for the school good for the environment.  Recycle phones and ink cartridges.  Earn points and money for your classroom.  Encourage companies to sponsor your by donating their points. A recycle fundraiser gets everyone involved.  This is a great way to RECYCLE! 
9. School Beautification:
Teach kids to love their surroundings and earn a green thumb.  Start seedlings and later plant flowers around the schoolyard. Encourage them to maintain the garden. This is a great way to RENEW!
Once a month or once a week.  Many schools have a” Planetpals DAY”. Do Planetpals recycle kits and activities to learn about earth and earth issues and encourage recycling. Why not have a recycle craft on that day! This is a great way to learn  ALL the 4 “r’s”!
