Our lonely planet is in bad need for fresh air. All the harmful pollutions have been choking her to death. These pollutions are also slowly stripping Mother Earth of her ozone layer. As parents, we can do our share to save Mother Earth.

For instance, do not allow your kids to free their balloons in mid-air. It is because these balloons would get into the ocean and for the sea turtles these airless colourful balloons will look like yummy jellyfish.

Admit it or not, most moms are pack-rats. This can be helpful if you know how to reuse and recycle all the stuff that you hoard inside your closet. As much as possible, it is better to purchase things that you really need. Of course, eat the foods that you are capable of eating to avoid wastage.

Lastly, parents can teach their kids to be kind to trees. Take time to read to kids a poem which was written by Helen Keller about trees, so that they will know its importance to the environment.
