My two sons, Miguel (15) and Kristian (11), are in high and elementary school respectively. I have been teaching them on how to preserve the environment. Aside from the values they learned from their schools and from our own home, I teach them to love God above all and His creations. I have been telling them that if they will not preserve the environment in their childhood...soon the next generation won't find clean things and everything will be dirty and toxic.
This is the situation: Every time my sons eat something, they don't just dispose the wrapper or waste anywhere. They understand that their trash can destroy the environment and it is ugly to the eye. If they cannot find a waste container, they just put the wrapper in their pockets instead.
One day our house helper was getting ready to wash my sons' clothes. She was surprised to find candy wrappers, plastics, etc. in their pockets. When she asked me about this I told her "I teach my sons to love the environment. I tell them to put their trash in their pockets instead of throwing it anywhere if they can't find waste container or thash cans." The she responded "Very smart boys."
That's how I teach my two sons to preserve the environment.
