This beautiful earth has much to offer. Each generation hands the care of it to the next. Right now, many folks are fighting the good fight to ensure the preservation of natural resources, animal species, and to keep the earth clear of waste. Recycling and upcycling are just a couple of the examples of how we are doing what we can. Unfortunately, we cannot do it alone; it will also take future generations to be as passionate an innovative as we are trying to be. Exposing our children, early in life to the dilemmas we are facing, and teaching them some solutions can better equip them for doing what they can now and as adults.
