This post is offered to celebrate the planet and help parents and grandparents learn new ways to be eco-friendly.

2. Reserve time to get outdoors for family interactions. Take in the beauty of nature. Add quality to relationships, and remove electronic devices from the equation.
4. Appreciate sunlight. It provides a healthy dose of Vitamin D, and shows off the landscape with its flowers and fauna.

Ashley Adamant.

One example from this post is: "Give them (children) their own reusable water bottle, napkin, lunch box, and cutlery.
