Brewster, NY (PRWEB) March 18, 2009
Teaching children to be environmentally conscious is now easy and affordable - as in only $2 for shipping and handling - thanks to Earth Stewardship posters created by the Chuckie Goodnight Foundation For The Environment, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing environmental education for children and preserving green space.
Available in four designs - Choose Organic, Save Water, Think & Choose, and The 4R's - the 12" x 18" posters feature Chuckie Goodnight and his crew of loyal plant and animal friends working to preserve and protect the environment. Each poster features eco-friendly messaging and highlights the simple things children can do to take good care of Mother Earth.
Studies show living 'green' is important to children. The 2008 study, Packaged Facts, "Kids and Tweens in the U.S.", based on data from Simmons Market Research Bureau, found that more than half of kids surveyed encourage their parents to buy green products. The study also revealed that nearly three-quarters of children ages six to eleven believe people should recycle while 40 percent say you should buy recycled paper products.
Despite youth's support for recycling, many American adults still do not recycle. According to Harris Poll #67, released on July 11, 2007, 30% of Echo Boomers, those aged 18 to 30, recycle nothing at all, compared to 23% of all adults surveyed. In addition, 11% of all adults surveyed say they opt not to recycle because they do not believe it makes a difference.
"The choices made in everyday life have a significant impact on the environment," said Cherie Ingraham, founder of the Chuckie Goodnight Foundation For The Environment. "It is critically important to teach children to be kind and gentle to and respectful of Mother Earth every day. Through our Earth Stewardship posters, we hope to inspire children nationwide to reduce, reuse, recycle and support organically grown and manufactured products so they can enjoy a cleaner Earth."
The Chuckie Goodnight Foundation For The Environment's Earth Stewardship Posters are printed on 100% recycled paper with vegetable dyes in keeping with the Foundation's mission.
