Helping The Planet Starts At Home 


Our daycare is Eco-healthy therefore we try encourage the children to take care of our planet for  us and the future generations.

  • When at the grocery store and you are choosing between a paper or plastic bags, choose neither ....Why??? Plastic takes 1,00 years to decompose and paper kills 14 million trees a year. Intead an easy Eco-friendly tip is to use cloth grocery bags. They are reusable and good for the planet.
  • This easy Eco-friendly tip may cost you a little more money: organic produce. It's a green tip because it takes less energy to harvest and doesn't use pesticides, so it'd healthier for the planet. But, organic produce isnt nescessarily a green money saving tip - thought it could make you physically healthier.
  • Another green tips is using one less napkin a day because paper napkins make a huge difference. Give up one paper napkin a day, and you'll save a billion pounds of paper waste in landfills a year. Using cloth napkins is one easy Eco-friendly tip.
  • Clean doesnt have a smell, when your bathroom is clean, it shouldnt smell like pine or lemon. Seitch from toxic to non-toxic, natural cleaning products. Seventh Generation sells non toxic products, which improve your family's healthy by being less likely to cause asthma attacks.
  • Most of the energy comes from coal-fired plants. A compact fluorescent light blub is more energy-efficent and will save your money in the long run. Compact Florescent light bulbs are energy bulbs are energy smart; they will cost more money, but they'll last longer                                                                                                                                                                                                              These are easy Eco-friendly tips are things you can do every day. 
  • Use the same cups over and over.
  • Don’t run the dishwasher unless it’s absolutely full.
  • Don’t throw clothing or shoes away, especially leather shoes.
  • Buy clothes at secondhand, consignment, or resale shops.
  • Put power strips on your TV to turn everything off when you go to bed or leave for the day. Vampire or stand by power drains energy.
