Sustainability is the responsibility of governments, businesses and everyone living on this planet. Our scientists and large non-profits are battling at the frontlines of this climate crisis through technology advancements and social assistance. Although we may not be able to assist on that front, our responsibility lies in educating our little ones on its importance. The good thing is there are plenty of small but achievable ways you and your students can help to make your classroom more sustainable.

This creative printable activity encourages children and students to find out simple ways to help make any space (school or home) more sustainable.
