10 Ways to Teach Children to Be Eco-Conscious


8. Shop responsibly

Don’t be afraid of thrift and consignment shops. Most are very particular about the clothes they chose and are typically barely worn. Not only are the clothes up to less than half the price, but these are one of the only places you can find vintage, one-of-a-kind items. If you can’t bare to wear used clothing, then research companies that are green and eco-friendly. Explain to your children what sustainable means and opt for companies that give back by donating a portion of their proceeds to environmental charities and other worthy issues.
