Happy Earth Week- "Turning Green"

Happy Earth Week to All from tutorMYway! Every year it seems that Earth Day and Earth Week are getting more press, which is fabulous! One common thread among all is that we ALL live on the same planet! It is literally "Our" Earth and "Our" lifestyles and choice have a direct impact on the way we choose to treat our Earth!
There are so many wonderful ways in which students and teachers can get involved in their communities to incorporate into their lives. However, we think it is essential that educators and community leaders focus on "being green" everyday, not just this week. Often we use the lessons during this week, then file them for next year. In working with youth, it is important to "emphasize, emphasize, emphasize..." so we hope that we continue to address throughout the year!

One organization that we have been following is "Teens Turning Green." The products they recommend are wonderful and the site is very educational for teens and adults. It's easy to read and a fun way to become "green" and offers suggestions on how to get involved. They describe the organization on their website:

Teens Turning Green is a national coalition of teens educating peers and
community members
about safe, healthy, and green lifestyle choices. The
campaign focuses on the daily chemical
exposures in our schools and
communities that harm our health. Teens across the country
work to advocate
for policy change to protect our health and inspire actions that sustain our earth.

Have a Happy Earth Week from tutorMYway, your in-home customized tutoring professionals!
