Happy Earth Day!

April 22, 2010 is the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. This day was started to inspire awareness and appreciation of our Earth’s environment. Take the time on Thursday to teach your kids about our planet and how they can help preserve it. I found some simple ways on the Kaboose website that you can use to teach your children how to take care of our planet by working to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Here are a few of Kaboose’s Earth-friendly ideas for kids:

- Shut off the water when they brush their teeth
- Walk, ride a bike or take the bus instead of traveling by car
- Take faster showers or baths in just a small amount of water
- Help hang clothes on the line instead of putting them in the dryer
- Choose products that are not over packaged

As you can see these are easy ways, that your kids can use to help save the Earth’s resources every day. At CWDkids, we try to do our part as well. We recycle paper in our office, we mail out our clothing in recyclable plastic mailing envelopes, and we try to choose clothing that is earth-friendly. One of our favorite brands Mulberribush has recently started to make their tee shirts with organic cotton.

Happy Earth Day to you and your family!
