The Sustainable Toddler: 7 Simple Things Our Family Does To Stay Sustainable

I am partnering with Earthjustice to as one simple question: Why should our children inherit a world made worse for them because we weren’t brave enough to preserve it for them?

Where we live, she has the chance to run through not just manicured parks but through farmlands and woods. Recently, on a walk this past autumn, she stopped to pick up a leaf. A rather large leaf at that. As a sudden breeze blew through the branches of the trees above us, more leaves came cascading down around us.
