Our children are our most valuable resource. These days they have more accessible information to be more environmentally conscious. We can help do our part by encouraging them by example and opportunity. And the EPA is a great place to start.

The EPA is committed to providing education at every age level. Online, in Washington DC or any of their many offices and labs in the US.

The Environmental Kids Club for elementary school children helps them learn hands-on how to protect the environment through an interactive website filled with games, puzzles and stories.

The EPA has groundbreaking Internship Programs and fellowships that give students that are interested in protecting the environment valuable career experience through recognized community service programs like clean-up days, as well as a host of awards and competitions for environmental stewardship.

Good green habits start right at home by encouraging the young ones to recycle, turn off the tap when brushing their teeth and not to litter. These small steps will help protect the environment for kids in the future. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
