What better occasion is there than today, which is Earth Day, to teach kids how they can get involved in helping the environment?
As readers know, my family are avid lovers and protectors of the environment. As regular contributors to our local community, we've helped renovate landscaping and gardens at public schools in Southern California. We've also participated in cleanup days at the beach.
We've visited more than 100 U.S. National Parks, we garden as a family, and I've written about various Earth-conscious groups such as Ritz-Carlton's Ambassadors of the Environment and Nature Rocks. I've also blogged about eco artists such as Hearts of Haiti and influential environmentalists and authors such as Ed Begley. Lots of eco-friendly crafts that kids can make have also been featured on this blog, too.
Here are five easy and fun ways, provided by LiveStrong.com, that get even very young children involved in creating a greener planet for all.

As soon as this post goes live, I'm heading outside with my four kids to do some yard cleanup and gardening. Watch for a later post with pictures and a story about what my family does to mark this important day. What will you be doing with your family for Earth Day? Please leave a post and share.
