How do I get my 12-year-old more interested in recycling?
Raising awareness is a great start. You might begin with some statistics on how much garbage we each produce or even track it yourself for a week and see what that looks like, in real life. Or try watching "The Story of Stuff" online together for a fun but powerful introduction to sustainability. And consider what resonates with your child. Does he/she love animals? Look at how litter and pollution impact their habitats or put their safety at risk for some inspiration.Check Out Our Related Content:
