10 Tips to Raise Environmentally-Conscious Children

At Camp Kupugani, our overnight summer camp that offers girls-only, boys-only, and blended (intentionally co-ed) programming, we try our best to be “green” or environmentally-conscious. We recycle, minimize water usage, and try to be cognizant of energy use. Especially as the results of our global unfriendliness to Mother Nature become increasingly apparent, it becomes more critical to have our children treat our world kindly. A recent article has some good tips on how to raise an environmentally-conscious child; check out our bullets below, with the full article here. Girl holding a small globe.
