Chattanooga, Tennessee—

Earth Day is on April 22, a recent OnePoll survey asked 2,000 parents of children between 5 and 18 about the environmentally-friendly habits they adopted over the last two years. Nearly 7 in 10 parents say their families have become more sustainable and eco-conscious since the start of the pandemic.

Sixty-three percent of parents have taken active steps to teach their kids about sustainability – which for many included a discussion about climate change (65%). Surprisingly, parents of younger children between five and 13 were slightly more likely to discuss climate change than those with teens ages 14 through 18 (64% vs. 59%).

Ways to become for eco-friendly:

  • Turn it off before you leave the room.
  • Use reusable bags instead of plastic.
  • Recycle
  • Learn about compost
  • Grow a garden or house plant
  • Donate clothes
