PBS Kids GO! It's My Life
Green Living

Discussion questions for kids to bring up with adults

Do you think the world's environment is better off, or worse off, then when you were a kid?

Do you think it's important to reduce, reuse, and recycle?

Can we talk about ways that we, as a family, can live greener?

Are there ways that all of us could use less water and less electricity?

Do we use too much gasoline? Can we talk about carpooling, ride-sharing, and other ways to save gas?

Does our area have curbside recycling? If yes, are we doing all we can to participate? If no, can we recycle on our own, or help start a curbside program?

What do we do with our food waste? Can we talk about getting a compost bin?

Can we plant a vegetable garden?
