Earth Day is a great opportunity to teach your kids the values of reduce, reuse, and recycle! The three R’s can translate to various do-good activities throughout the day from turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth or saving scrap paper for another purpose. To further inspire you and your family, we’ve round-up some creative activities to help us do our part.
