Global warming, air pollution, water pollution, deforestation, endangered species…these are the issues that are affecting our planet today. They are problems that, if left unchecked, could completely disrupt the way people live on this planet. Global warming in particular has the potential to wreak havoc on the planet as we know it. – The Green Teen
I came from the throwaway generation. We were brought up on disposable razors, paper plates and TV dinners that came in packages and plates that were simply tossed after using. Maybe we lived in a bubble, because little did we know the consequences that all of this would have on generations to come.
As an adult and parent, it has been my responsibility to change the way that we do things around the mansion. From driving a hybrid car to reducing, reusing and recycling – going green has become a way of life. Hopefully, it is not too little too late.
We need to instill in our children the IMPORTANCE of their impact of their actions on what is to become of our planet. Teens have the knowledge, the skills, and the POWER to save the planet.
I was given a copy of the new book: The Green Teen: The Eco-Friendly Teen’s Guide to Saving the Planetto read and review. The book offers a PRACTICAL way to CHANGE in order to reduce Global Warming. The Green Teen combines simple and quick eco-friendly tips, interviews with “green teens”, ideas for organizing and communicating environmental change and a host of resources in a handy “grab-and-go” format. Your teen will find it easy to read and just as easy to translate into ACTIONS.
From how their decisions impact our environment to how to make the effort to be greener in their every day life, The Green Teen: The Eco-Friendly Teen’s Guide to Saving the Planetwill give your kids the knowledge that they need to make the changes that are necessary for an eco-friendly world.
