Summer is almost over but helping the polar ice caps is an on-going event. Popsicle is quite excited about helping to “Slow the Melt”.
Popsicle is partnering with National Geographic Kids to raise awareness on the melting ice caps and helping to slow it down. Just by using less energy you can help. By shutting off the lights every time you leave the room or by turning off the water while brushing your teeth you are taking small steps to help. National Geographic created 10 simple steps to slow the melting of the polar ice caps.
Switch off the light every time you leave a room.
Turn off the TV or video game and play outside.
Ride a bike or walk instead of using the car.
Take short showers instead of baths. Aim for five minutes-but still get clean!
Turn over used paper and use it for artwork or scrap paper.
Turn off the water while brushing your teeth.
Participate in clean up days at a beach or park.
Scrape leftovers off dishes and into the trash instead of rinsing the food off. Then wash them.
Drink from a reusable water bottle. All those single-serve bottles create waste in production and pollution with delivery.
Place your desk next to a window and use natural light instead of a lamp.
You can learn more from “Big Book of Fun”. My kids received a copy of Big Book of Fun by National Geographic and Zoe loves looking at the pictures and asking a ton of questions. I love watching her interest in something so educational. And for those that live in a rainy area like me:
- For those rainy summer days, Popsicle has created four fun and educational games to keep the kids entertained, which can be found in the Slow Melt Game Zone on Popsicle.com/kids.
