Leading by example is crucial in raising environmentally-conscious kids to be responsible adults. I take my reusable bags everywhere I go and each time I refuse a plastic bag, I feel positively virtuous!
Teach your kids that same feeling of satisfaction by giving them their very own reusable bag. These new ones by SAKitToMe feature gorgeous designs which will appeal to all. Not only will the kids be entering a realm of responsibility where they make choices about the way they consume, they will learn to take care of a possession. Last year we swapped over to reusable lunch bags and my nearly five-year-old is well trained in taking care of them.
Choose from owls, butterflies, koalas (great for overseas gifts), dinosaurs, elephants and whales – all are backed with an awesome pattern worthy of any retro-loving household. They roll into a small pouch which can then be clipped to a school bag for easy access at library time. They also make great swimming bags or casual baby change bags.
Each bag costs $8.95, or $24.40 for three – or get together with a bunch of friends and order the pack of thirty for $140, from Envirotrend.
