  11. 11. <ul><li>“ We plant the seeds that one day will grow. We water seeds already planted, </li></ul><ul><li>knowing that they hold future promise. </li></ul><ul><li>We lay foundations that will need further development… It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, </li></ul><ul><li>a step along the way.” (Ken Untener) </li></ul>

  17. 17. Raising Green Kids <ul><li>Reducing: Waste </li></ul><ul><li>According to the U.S. EPA, food waste is the #1 least recycled material. </li></ul><ul><li>Food and paper are the two largest components in landfills, accounting for nearly 50% of all municipal solid waste.  </li></ul><ul><li>There is more food and paper in landfills than diapers, Styrofoam, and tires—all combined. </li></ul>

  19. 19. <ul><li>Reducing: Food Waste </li></ul><ul><li>Composting has come a long way, and it provides incredibly rich material to add to your garden. Composting has evolved from the chicken-wire wrapped pile of leaves in the back yard to under-the-sink, odor-free, worm-free models that can become a learning tool (and a fun responsibility) for children. Outdoor models, have also become much easier to use. </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>Reducing: Bottles and Cans </li></ul><ul><li>Make Your Own Soda or Sparking Water! </li></ul><ul><li>Use our specialty seltzer maker with replaceable CO2 capsules to make sparkling water, flavored sparkling water, and homemade sodas. </li></ul><ul><li>This product reduces bottled water container waste, and reduces the carbon footprint of transporting water across the country or from abroad…and saves 100s of dollars each year. </li></ul>

  25. 25. <ul><li>Water Filters </li></ul><ul><li>For countertops: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Use a premium 10-stage filtration system to remove chemicals and contaminants.
