Creative Environment Kids

This page is my “resources” page for kids (and their parents).

There’s a Facebook group called “Creative Environment Kids” where I share inspiring environment and climate content relevant to kids of all ages.

While I think that my site is suitable for kids 12+ (with resources relevant for parents to share with younger kids that don’t access the internet on their own), on this page I’ll post link to articles and resources that I put together for eco-savvy kids and their parents.

Blog posts:
