How do you teach your child about environmental protection? Nowadays, kids are stuck in the room or blowing a day in front of an electronic device, and it is annoying to pick up trash or throw trash into the trash can.
In 2015, the video of plastic straws on the sea turtle nose has brought back huge repercussions and attracted many environmental protection groups.
According to a report by the Environmental Protection Agency in the Washington Post, there are 258 million tons of waste in the United States. The World Economic Forum study also reports that around 78 million metric tons of packaging plastic is produced annually worldwide, with one-third of the plastics flowing into the ocean each year.
If you go this way, by 2050, the plastic that floats in the ocean may become more plentiful than fish.
Therefore, children who are going to be the next protagonist should be informed about how to protect the environment through 'eco fairing' in advance.
According to the blog Sika, eco-fairing helps children develop environmental protection habits from childhood, and does not think environmental protection is a nuisance or responsibility
If you have used disposable products such as plastic bags, plastic spoons, and forks without thinking about it, buying a zero-waist lifestyle can be difficult. Restrictions on the use of disposables are becoming increasingly difficult as children grow up to recognize the convenience of plastic.

Help your child live an environmentally friendly life
Last year's Cambridge University research report, posted on the Haridai website, claims that children who play in the open air are behaving in a way that protects and cherishes nature even as a teenager. Therefore, early education is essential for environmental protection. These habits can be propagated to peers and can be an example of environmental protection for other children.
Let the plants grow.
According to the outdoor revival, raising trees is an eco-friendly activity that gives the child a sense of accomplishment and is enjoyed by all the family. Children like to play with the dirt. We may have to go to plant trees every weekend.
In addition to trees, it is good to plant small garden in backyard. It is also a good way to ask your child what kinds of trees and plants you would like to grow. It is also a good time to research the trees, vegetables, fruits, etc. that you can raise.
And do not forget to tell us how important this present lifestyle will be in the future. Also, if you sprout your own seeds, your child will take responsibility for the plant and pay attention.
Spend time with nature
According to Haidaway, the best way for a child to cherish nature is to expose it to nature. Let's plan camping and hiking to feel the beauty of nature. Your child will love nature.
You should also do a lot of healthy outdoor activities with your child. Do you want your children to sit in front of a computer or smart phone and spend more than six hours in the same attitude? You have to make it move while exercising. Also, let 's train how to clean up your surroundings when you pack to return home.

Let's take a bag that can be recycled when going shopping.
It is also a good idea to go shopping with a recyclable bag or paper bag to reduce the use of plastic bags. If you want to buy genuine organic products in your shopping bags, it is also a good idea to buy organic produce at a local agricultural outlet.
Let your child know about environmentally friendly 3Rs.
The 3Rs to teach your child to be environmentally friendly are: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
Reducing the amount of everything you use is very important in environmental protection. To reduce the use of electricity, turn off the unused lights and lock the faucet to save water. It is a small act, but it reduces worry about money if it repeats every day. Let's protect nature with a little action you can do.
In order to live an environmentally friendly life, excessive waste should be avoided. This lifestyle not only saves on living expenses, but it can also tell the difference between reusing and not reusing a child.
It is also good to reapply clothes that have been worn once or twice or not yet. Not only can it reduce the burden of buying new clothes, it can also be a good opportunity to let your child know what clothes they have. If things do not work out, try to make old jeans look like new clothes.
Reuse of a thing or recycling to make a new thing old is an example of plastic bucket decoration. Creating ornaments with colored water bottles can protect the environment and develop the child's creativity. It is also a necessity to let your child know that you can make money by selling recycled products.
Set an example, and make it concrete.
There are many ways to teach your child how to protect the environment, but it is useless if parents do not practice it. If you want your child to be sincerely informed about environmental protection, be a parent to protect the environment. If you show an example in front of your child, you will naturally realize how they protect nature, and you will feel that there is no one without nature.
