  3. Start with the children. They can teach the rest of us.

  5. That sounds like a very good thing. Teaching the children to respect the environment will hopefully create like minded adults one day.

  6. I cannot tell you how much I applaud this initiative. If children can grow up with an environmental conscience as part of their everyday life we may just be on the way to fixing some of the attitudes that are now so prevalent. And maybe the kids will bug their parents to do the right thing too.

  13. It's not easy being green, as Kermit said, but I think we all need to try harder. Good to see that students and schools are working hard to be as green as possible.

  15. That's just the ticket. I learned some of my environmentalism as a child and it's stayed with me my entire life.

  20. How fine the students themselves are involved in this movement. There may be hope for the younger generation after all.
