British children learn a lot about the Earth at school. They celebrate Earth Day. They get special environmental education. Even though they are children, and they can’t do much about pollution or energy waste, there are a lot of ways in which they can help to save the Earth.
What can children do to save the Earth?
One way is to remember the three Rs: Reuse, Recycle Reduce.
Save the plastic bags and use them again.
Save plastic food containers to play in sand and water.
Buy recycled items.
Collect and recycle newspapers.
Take paper or cloth bags to shops.
Plant trees and flowers.
Don’t replace a notebook or an exercise-book until it is completely filled out.
Don’t take baths. Take quick showers.
Don’t leave the water running while brushing your teeth.
Give away old clothes to someone who may need them.
Walk, use your bike or public transport instead of a car.
Switch off the light on when you leave the room.
There are over 300 nature centres in British cities and more than 30 in London. Children go there with their teachers to study and enjoy nature. There are a lot of environment groups in Britian: Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, London Wildlife Trust, etc.
