  1. Oh, what fun!!! I would love to be entered, Kris! The kids and I recycle, don't litter, pick up trash, turn off water and lights when not in use, etc. My daughter loves the whole "Kids for Change" that Disney promotes, so that get her even more excited about it.

    Thanks!

  4. This is awesome! I'd love to show my kiddos this DVD and book! Great giveaway and thank you!

    As for your question...we live in a pretty great place that has an incredible farmer's market and is very pro-eco-friendly everything. It's nice because we can buy great local organic foods and we always make sure to recycle nearly everything that goes out the door. It's great to teach the kiddos about it, they love learning and being a part of it!

    Thanks again!

  7. We love word girl - and pbs kids shows in general! My boys are very concious not to waste the water when they are in the bathroom brushing their teeth or washing their hands. We also have a separate trash can in the kitchen for recycling, and we have our own veggie garden - the boys love to help with it! Thanks for the giveaway!! :)

  8. We recycle most times. We don't burn plastic. We don't pour gasoline on our lawn (or our neighbors'). We don't play with plutonium. My God, Al Gore would be proud.

    I don't need the book...kids are too old...just wanted to check in.

    Cheers,
    Brian
