How Can Kids Help the Environment?

As adults, we often talk about ways to help the earth, but have you ever stopped to think about how kids can help the environment? Even small actions can make a big impact on the natural world around us. 

At Purple Plumeria, we are passionate about promoting sustainability and reducing our impact on the environment. We believe that everyone, including kids, can play a role in protecting the earth. Here are some simple ways kids can help the environment:

10 Tips for How to Help the Earth as a Kid

1. Brushing your teeth

Did you know that leaving the water running while you brush your teeth can waste up to four gallons of water per minute? Encourage kids to turn off the water while they brush and conserve water.

2. Leave a room, turn things off

One way kids can help the earth is to remember to turn off lights and electronics when they leave a room to save energy. As a bonus, kids are great at reminding their parents and siblings to follow these same best practices.

3. Eat sustainable, local food

Eating sustainable and locally sourced food reduces the amount of fossil fuels used in transportation and supports local farmers.

4. Plant a tree

Planting a tree is a great way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote the natural resources in the world.

5. Reduce waste

Encourage kids to use reusable bags instead of single-use plastic bags and recycle whenever possible. Keeping a recycle bin where kids can easily access it makes it easy and fun.

6. Turn off the water

When washing hands or dishes, turning off the water while you lather or scrub can save a significant amount of water.

7. Impact on the environment

Teach kids about the impact of their actions on the environment and how small changes can make a big difference.

8. Earth Day

Celebrate Earth Day by participating in local events and activities that promote sustainability and conservation.

9. Energy efficient

Using energy-efficient appliances and light bulbs can help reduce pollution and save money on electricity bills.

10. Water bottles

Encourage kids to use refillable water bottles instead of buying single-use plastic bottles.


At Purple Plumeria, we are dedicated to making a difference in the world. With every purchase, a portion of the proceeds goes towards supporting the Clearwater Marine Aquarium's mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and release wildlife. 

This year, we are also sponsoring a sea turtle nest near Tampa, FL. By choosing biodegradable products and supporting conservation efforts, we can all make a positive impact on the environment. Remember, every small action counts!
