Top 3 Ways Kids can Help the Earth!
If you are a kid reading this, and you want to get green and help the Earth, you are at the right place. Although, really, these tips can be used by anyone, not just kids. Without further due, here are the top 3 ways kids can help the Earth.
- If are a student at a school these days, you will realize that many, and I mean A LOT of people don’t eat all their food, and they throw it away. Food, especially meat and some vegetables, take up a lot of energy, water and resources to produce. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Americans throw out about 40% of edible food, and the food takes along the energy that had been used to make it. Yes, it’s AMERICA, but still, try to not waste too much food. Either save it for later, or just tell your parents to pack less food for you! For more info on water usage in different products visit the Water Footprint Network.
- If you cannot prevent waste, try to make sure you sort it. Each year, over half of all condo “waste” is recyclable! Imagine all the recycling, which could be made into something else, going into a landfill! At school and at home, sort your recyclables, garbage and food waste. If your school doesn’t have different waste bins for food waste, garbage and recycling, go to your eco-club/green-club teachers and try to get them to get some. Or go to a teacher or principal and ask them. If you need help sorting waste, go to the Toronto Garbage collection Waste Wizard.
- Try to save water. You could turn off the tap when not in use, and at school, don’t play with the tap water. Use as much as you need and don’t waste it splashing your friends or doing something else that isn’t necessary. Also, don’t waste water with the water fountain by playing with the water as well. There are also many other ways to save water, and if you need help, just leave a comment.
If you need ANY help leave a comment or contact us. It would be nice as well if you could share this website with your friends. Have a good day!

This article has good content. However, if the main point of the 3 methods were in bold and highlighted as subheadings, the crux will reach many more readers. A hurried reader usually in this visually-rich social media days, do not read the entire content to get the point.
I’m a writer and a parent. Displaying the same content in a different way would help to reach more people.
As you can already see, I’m using more bold and emphasis in my newer articles. Thanks for the advice!
I love recycling, I try to have a positive impact so my children can see it as a good thing
