GO  GREEN​  The environment is all around us, it includes our parks, ponds, oceans and mountains; and it is up to us to make sure that the Earth’s natural beauty is available for everyone to enjoy. Learning about our environment and taking positive actions to protect our Earth is one of the first steps in doing our part to be environmentally friendly. Everyone can help, no matter how big or how small; through recycling, energy conservation, and other small changes, we can work together to save the environment. There are so many fun and easy ways to help the environment. All of these small changes add up and can make a big impact on our world and encourage others to get involved and go greenThe environment is all around us, it includes our parks, ponds, oceans and mountains; and it is up to us to make sure that the Earth’s natural beauty is available for everyone to enjoy.

ALL LIFE ON EARTH IN SOME WAY DEPENDS ON THE ENVIRONMENT. THE ENVIRONMENT PLAYS A MAJOR PART IN THE CIRCLE OF LIFE.  A HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT CAN PLAY A PART IN PREVENTING ILLNESS AND DISEASE.  

Protect children's environmental health. Children may be more vulnerable to environmental exposures than adults because: Their bodily systems are still developing They eat more, drink more, and breathe more in proportion to their body size Their behavior can expose them more to chemicals and organisms.

GO GREEN.

 Children are often more vulnerable to pollutants than adults due to differences in behavior and biology, that can lead to greater exposure and/or unique windows of susceptibility during development.

THE HEALTH OF CHILDREN CAN BE EFFECTED BY SOME ACTIVITIES THAT COULD SOMETIMES BE WRONGLY UNDERTAKEN  AS  ACCEPTABLE  ACTIONS  BY IRRESPONSIBLE  ADULTS. HERE ARE SOME HEALTHY TIPS.

Don't smoke and don't let others smoke in your home or car.
Keep your home as clean as possible. Dust, certain household pests, secondhand smoke, and pet pollen can trigger asthma attacks and allergies.
Limit outdoor activity on ozone alert days when air pollution is especially harmful.
Walk, use bicycles, join or form carpools, and take public transportation.

Dog fouling on pavements, grass verges parks and playgrounds etc. could cause a serious health risk to children. Dog pooh should always be picked up safely by the dog`s owner, then disposed of in the correct manner. 
Limit motor vehicle idling, do not sit in the car with the engine running when it can be avoided.
Avoid open burning. Do not burn anything that can be usefully recycled.
