The Future’s in Their Hands — Teaching Your Children to Go Green #PlantingWithPablo

This is a sponsored post for New Leaf Energy.  All opinions & thoughts are my own.

I just picked Connor up from school today and we are on our usual route home on the freeway here in DFW.  Then as I’m driving along I pass a marquee that says “LIMIT OUTDOOR ACTIVITY” or “OZONE LEVEL ORANGE”.  Can I tell you how much that scares me about our air quality???

Will my son be able to grow up in a world without pollution and trash all over the highways?  I am praying he will.  All we have to do is be conscious of our actions.  Laziness is what has led us to this path of destruction.
D7K_0678We have started to teach Connor what you’re able to recycle – plastics, cardboard, and glass.  He knows exactly where the recycle bin is in our house and he goes straight to it!  Love his willingness to save and re-use.  We also try not to use so many paper items like paper plates, cups, and silverware.  Yes, it is easier to just chunk things in the trash…but beyond that remember where it ends up!  A landfill somewhere near you.

I was super excited to hear about a new campaign called “Planting with Pablo” & New Leaf Energy.

Pablo B. Green, is the loyal tree frog mascot & will be planting 1 new tree for every new Facebook Fan received through 12/23/13.
