Children Want Parents to Buy Green
Maybe there is hope for the future!
According to a recent survey of 1,027 British children, ages 7-14, 82 percent of them rated learning about green issues to be important, placing it ahead of traditional subjects like science, history, and art, and only slightly behind English and math.
Almost all of the children were worried about people damaging the planet and almost two-thirds claim to have influence over their parents’ green behavior. And they’re right—another study showed that 6 out of 10 parents surveyed say their children persuade them to be greener.
What do you think about the results?
I’m encouraged to see so many children interested in the environment. I hope that this does make a difference. After all, younger generations have more time to make a difference, and a huge incentive to do so.
