PBS Getting Kids to Go Green

PBS has always been known for it’s kid-friendly approach to educational programming – Sesame Street anyone?  But now they have gone green.  Literally.

The Greens is an online series about a family becoming aware of, as well as utilizing, environmental practices in their own home.  The site hosts several short videos, each one on a different environmental topic.  Everything from buying local food to decreasing our carbon footprint is fair game.  And speaking of games, there are several on this site as well.  There’s also a blog, character descriptions (so you can get to know the Greens), a kids activity guide, downloadable features like iron-on logos and desktop wallpaper, and more.

It’s a cute, fun take on teaching kids about taking care of our planet and being good environmental stewards.  So check out the website and Go Green!
