Confession: I'm a total wanna-be environmentalist. A friend to tree-huggers everywhere! Oh, but I don't like grass, or camping, so that kinda nips the whole let-your-green-flag-fly thing right in the bud, doesn't it? #LeSigh
No worries, I found a solution. Since I'm not quite "there" yet, I simply grab a seat at the table with the cool kids who totally get it. Yep, I found an entire world of environmentally-conscious folks who make it their job to help save our plant. Greening Youth Foundation (GYF) is an Atlanta-based organization that uses comprehensive environmental education programs in schools and their greater communities to nurture environmental stewardship and provide environmental career opportunities to underserved youth. Their projects don't just benefit Atlanta either, check out their G.R.E.E.N. project!
As a closet environmentalist, I jump at opportunities to do my part by pointing anyone looking my way in the direction of great resources on the topic. I was given a promotional copy of a children's book, Hannah and the Talking Tree, and it was an absolute pleasure to read and share with my girls. My four year old in particular, loved the story so much, she and I decided we had to share with you!
