Do It

teach kids to leave their world better than they found it

Susan Ciatto


It started for us at the beach last summer. We saw some trash--a plastic bottle, a piece of rope washed ashore--and we picked it up to take off the beach and dispose properly. My kids started "cleaning up" our beach sites every time we visited, collecting a few stray items here and there. Then they started doing it elsewhere and I realized that they had developed the habit of doing something when they see litter, not just frowning at it.
