Teaching our kids about the environment, the earth and ways they can help make a difference is important. April 22nd is Earth Day, the day we celebrate the earth and our efforts to help make a difference, protecting our planet. 

Events are held worldwide from tree planting to community clean ups, its inspiring to see so many come out for something so important to our future and our children's future. 

What better way to celebrate the earth than by starting the day off with a healthy, organic breakfast that helps both animals and the planet! Just in time for Earth Day, Nature's Path Envirokids has launched two new whole grain corn puff cereals, including chocolate flavoured Choco Chimps cereal, and cinnamon flavoured Jungle Munch cereal.

My kids are big cereal eaters and I already enjoy Natures Path Love Crunch cereal as I mentioned in a previous post, I knew Natures Path Envirokids cereal would be enjoyable for my kids. I like knowing that Nature's Path Envirokids cereals are wholesome cereals. So many of our favourites unfortunately contain things that may not be so good for us despite the tastey flavours. This is a nice change when it comes to our daily breakfast favourite, cereal. Natures Path Envirokids cereals are certified organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, and made without toxic pesticides, artificial flavours or colours. 

Because Envirokids is a 1% For the Planet member, every time you purchase Envirokids products, 1% of the sales are donated to support endangered species, habitat conservation and environmental education for kids around the world! 
Specifically, Envirokids Choco Chimps cereal supports the Jane Goodall institute, global leaders in chimpanzee protection (did you know Ms Goodall turned 80 this April?) and Envirokids Jungle Munch cereal supports Fauna and Flora International, acclaimed heroes in Sumatra elephant conservation.

You can find these new Natures Path Envirokids cereals at your local grocers across Canada starting this April! For more information about these and other Natures Path products, please visit www.naturespath.ca! You can also follow @NaturesPath and @Envirokids on Twitter for the latest updates!

  1. We talk about the vanishing ice pack, we clean up garbage on the beach, they know to recycle, to turn off lights etc. I try to include a bit of everything so that my grandkids just do things out of habit.

  26. I teach them to turn off lights and unplug what doesn;t need to be plugged in. I teach them to recycle, reduce and re-use. I teach them to garden and shop locally as much as possible. I teach them not to litter anywhere, or to pollute our water and lakes. I teach them to wash laundry with cold water, and about how some appliances use way more power than others. I teach them they are wasting water with long hot showers and wasting power too.
