It’s Hope Koala again. How many lights did you switch off? Did you tell your friends about the challenge? Remember to keep switching the lights off while doing this month’s challenge. Then you’ll make a very big impact and turn your place into a super-duper sustainable home.
You are a true green warrior and already you’re making a difference – step by step. Write and tell me all about it!
A little bird friend of mine said some school classes are doing our GREEN CHALLENGE as well. This is so awesome! Hope some of you draw pictures for me and send them in.
I took part in the February challenge, too. In fact, I was so quick switching off lights I sometimes didn’t notice one of my bear-ly here friends was still busy in that room….ooops! Do you know who it was?
And now it’s March! Our WATER-CARE MONTH
Are you up for this next Green Challenge?
This month let’s try turning off the water while brushing your teeth! That’s all you have to do – and yes, remind others to do it too.
Why does this help our planet? Conserving water makes sense because it is a precious resource that can run out. And did you know it also helps conserve energy and reduce carbon pollution? It takes a lot of energy to pump, treat, and heat water, so saving water reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
Just by turning off the tap while brushing your teeth, you can save up to 30 litres of water! Isn’t this mind-blowing? Just think about how much this would be if all your family members did it for the entire month. I nearly choked on my mouthful of eucalyptus leaves when I learned about this!
So – this month be a green warrior and turn that tap off. You’ll do our planet a massive favour. Thank you!Illustration: from BEDTIME DADDY written by Sharon Giltrow, illustrated by Katrin Dreiling (EK Books, 2020) Many thanks to EK Books for use of this image.
