No Child Left Inside:
Initiative Reconnects Youth With The Planet


--home + food + family--
No Child Left Inside is a brilliant example of a program that is building a deeply intuitive relationship between our youngest global citizens and our planet. Beyond big talk and nicely written books, the program gets kids intimately involved with the environment.

This special initiative of Connecticut Governor M. Jodi Rell, coordinated by the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection is also meant to encourage Connecticut families and visitors alike to enjoy all the recreational resources and outdoor activities available in Connecticut's state parks, forests and waterways.

Here is a sensational video of some of their inspiring programs:

Hey thanks for the great blog, I love this stuff. I don’t usually do much for Earth Day but with everyone going green these days, I thought I’d try to do my part.

I am trying to find easy, simple things I can do to help stop global warming (I don’t plan on buying a hybrid). Has anyone seen that EarthLab.com is promoting their Earth Day (month) challenge, with the goal to get 1 million people to take their carbon footprint test in April?... I took the test, it was easy and only took me about 2 minutes and I am planning on lowering my score with some of their tips.

I am looking for more easy fun stuff to do. If you know of any other sites worth my time let me know.
