April 22 is Earth Day, and we want to invite you to celebrate how you are contributing to the environment through your actions at home.  Here are some ideas that you can use to engage your family in conversation and agency:

  • How does the way that we dispose of trash support the environment?
  • What systems have we put in place at home to save our recyclables for when these can be deposited in the recycling collection places?
  • How have we changed our habits to use less water after Quito’s municipality called for citizens to help with water consumption?

Here is a site with ideas and a footprint calculator.

Movie recommendations for parents from Common Sense Media that can drive powerful conversations.
