Raising the next ecoist

It is nice to imagine a time in the far-distant future when all of the earth-friendly and carbon reducing efforts being made today will have succeeded in creating a more stable environment. Of course, the sort of progress being made today can only continue if parents raise children who are ecologically-minded too.

While this can begin with the use of eco-friendly childcare products that include bottles, toys, and skin care items, it must go far beyond that. Today’s children live in a world that is much more aware of the need to reduce, reuse and recycle than in previous generations. Certainly there have been times when people were sure to retain some materials that were in short supply (such as in times of war), but modern consumers understand that it shouldn’t take extremes or scarcity to make us aware of our habits.
