In today’s landscape, it’s more important than ever for people to take environmental education seriously.
How much did you learn about the environment growing up? Did you have easy access to educational resources revolving around the environment? Earth Day – occurring every year on April 22 – was founded to promote education about environmental issues, marking the birth of the modern environmental movement. Since then, Earth Day has expanded into a global holiday to celebrate our planet, make an extra effort to go green, and spread awareness about environmental protection, conservation and sustainability. To celebrate, we have compiled our top picks for environmental education websites that you should follow!
A guide to green living, the Daily Green provides tons of tips to make going green easy. Their content ranges from home ideas to food and recipes, health, beauty and style, holidays, and even product reviews.
Catered to children, parents and teachers, the Green Guide for Kids provides information about a variety of environmental topics, and solutions to help the planet. It’s an online environmental resource for children in particular to learn about local and global environmental issues, and to find ideas, information and inspiration to go green.
“Making sustainability sexy.” TreeHugger is a great website to follow for blogs on green news, with topics ranging from green design, living, transportation, business, energy, science and technology.
You have probably already heard of National Geographic for its stunning photography of natural scenery around the globe. However, you may not have explored their website yet. It features important news about habitat protection, threatened species, climate change, plus quizzes, and more – in addition to amazing photography.
Energy Central is a hub for news and content revolving around the electric power industry. However, their website also has some interesting, informative articles focused on the green side of energy. For example, their article on the environmental effects of ink cartridges discusses how unsustainable ink cartridges can be, and things we can do to reduce the waste of these cartridges.
