My Little Environmentalist

My youngest daughter Caitie considers herself to be quite the environmentalist. She even started a garbage club (with absolutely no prompting) at school and has many members who help pick up trash during recess. She is only 7 but knows all about the 3 R's as well as water conservation, and animal conservation. She really amazes me sometimes.

She loves visiting kid and eco friendly websites in her quest to learn new things. One of them is EarthEco International. Recently, she learned all about protecting Wild Dolphins. I also think she has a small crush on one of the founders - Philippe Cousteau. I have to admit he is pretty cute! Philippe Cousteau is the twenty- six year-old son of Jan and Philippe Cousteau Sr., and the grandson of Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau. He is continuing the work of his father and grandfather by educating the public about environmental and conservation issues and inspiring people young and old to become better stewards of our water planet. Their motto is "Everything you do makes a difference". Very cool!!

For more info visit EarthEco International. It is a nonprofit 501c3 organization that was founded in 2000 by siblings Philippe and Alexandra Cousteau in honor of their father Philippe Cousteau Sr., famous son of the legendary explorer Jacques Yves Cousteau. EarthEcho's programs are dedicated to a legacy of devotion to the conservation and restoration of the oceans.

Probably one of the greatest things we do as parents (or grandparents) is influence the next generation!
My little niece was watching me tear down cardboard boxes for the recycling bin when she got the idea to suggest that her school recycle paper products. Her county doesn't have a recycle program and she felt she was missing out on something by not living in the city

See, this is wonderful and gives me hope for human kind.

Our organic garden is thriving.. but as of June 1st in southern california we are restricted to the use of water for plants to twice a week. Mondays and Thursday, that's it. We're worried for our tomatoes and our yet to bloom string beans.
