Five Ways Kids Can Help The Environment

    -    

As a kid, it might seem like you're too young, too small, or the problem is too big for you to help the environment. While the problems we face dealing with the environment are big, there are a number of things that a young person can do to help preserve and protect the world around them.


If you live in a Capitola Condos, you can still help preserve the natural world and make it a more enjoyable place. Here are a few things that you can do to help save the world. What matters is that you can make a difference at your age regardless of where you live.

Conserve Electricity

The more we use electricity, the more greenhouse gases we release into the air, and the more of our resources we consume. While using electricity isnít necessarily a bad thing, being wasteful is. Instead, think before you turn on the television, or that lamp next to the couch.


Could you survive without the television for another hour? Can sunlight provide the light you need? If so, consider making use of the sunlight or playing with your friends. And of course, when you're done, be sure to turn off the computer, television or light. The less electricity you use, the better. In a Capitola condo, you have a smaller space to heat and clean and cool, so you can help right there by monitoring how much water and electricity you use each month. Figure out ways to save.

Conserve Water

Just like electricity, the amount of water you use can greatly affect the environment around you. By doing such simple things as taking shorter showers, or turning off the water when you brush your teeth, you can help conserve water. Even just having your parents load the dishwasher in your Capitola condo once a day instead of twice can make a real difference. The more water you conserve, the more will be available for animals, drinking, and the planet.

Use Alternate Transportation

One of the easiest ways to help the environment is to use your feet to get to the place you want to go. By walking, riding your bike, or even using public transportation, you can help reduce the amount of pollution being forced into the air by cars on the road. The design aspects of a Capitola condo is such that public transportation is close at hand. While it might not seem like much, together with your friends you can have a big impact just by walking to the store instead of getting a ride in a car.

Get Outside and Volunteer

If you want to do something more than just turning off the television or taking shorter showers, it's easy to take an active role in helping the environment. As you're walking to school, pick up some of the litter you find on the ground. Get together with some of your friends and talk to the park district in your area. They probably will have recreational areas that need to be cleaned up, or trees planted. Or you can help your school organize fund raisers for such things as an endangered species, or even the World Wildlife Fund.

Tell Adults What They Can Do

Believe it or not, sometimes telling adults what to do can be a great way to help the environment. By encouraging your parents, teachers, and neighbors to make environmentally good choices in what they do and buy, you can help them make an impact as well. That, along with the good choices that you make the world can become a better place. Maybe you can suggest a class project and get your class involved?
