Okay, time to take positive action with something that is under our control. Even kids can reduce their dependency on oil and petroleum.  Here are some ways you can do just that this summer!

  • Tell mom and dad you don't need a ride--walk or take your bike with a friend
  • Stop buying plastic toys and just say no to those Happy Meal Toys!  (do you really need another crummy toy you'll play with for 2 minutes?)
  • No more crayolas--yes they are made with petroleum.  Buy beeswax crayons instead.
  • Read that label on that cool t-shirt before you buy it. Skip polyester and nylon in favor of natural fibers!
  • Do not buy plastic water bottles--80% are never recycled and end up in our landfills and oceans.
