I wondered if anyone had any inspiring stories of children (under 11) really taking up the fight against single and limited use plastics? I’m doing some research on how parents can get their children interested and how they can equip them with the tools to change things. Thanks!!
One really inspiring story is that of Milo Cress who started the Be Strawfree Campaign when he was 9 years old: http://ecocycle.org/bestrawfree
I also know some teachers you could get in touch with who are inspiring their classes to take action. Are you interested in that or mainly in parents?
That’s an interesting discussion. And I do agree parents should make sure their kids do not throw garbage on the streets/parks etc. A few times I’ve seen kids litter and when I made a comment on that I’ve got a what-do-you-want-from-me look. Well, I think if parents all over the house will use glass containers, and buy candies in the cellophane-looking wrappers like the Japanese Botan-brand candy, kids might subconsciously understand plastic is bad. Well, aren’t kids always looking up to their moms and dads? And if they are their superheroes, kids will follow in their parents footsteps
