Peninsula woman injured in crash Spin day for ALS

A Central Saanich woman suffered injuries after a car crash in Oak Bay around 3:40 p.m. on April 12. A 34-year-old Oak Bay man driving a Volkswagon Cabriolet eastbound on Lansdowne Road apparently crossed Beach Drive without first checking to make sure the road was clear.

The Volkswagon struck a Hyundai Santa Fe driven by a 69-year-old Central Saanich man. The Hyundai driver’s 61-year-old passenger suffered injuries to her arm and hand during the crash. The Oak Bay driver was issued a ticket for leaving a stop sign when unsafe. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Everything from Coldplay to Led Zeppelin will blare from the speakers in the spin session that will seem to go on forever. In fact it will be a 10-hour marathon ‘class’ at Panorama to raise funds for a worthy cause. Joanne Lomax, who works at the North Saanich centre, created the fundraiser for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis after hearing about a similar spin marathon in New York last year. A friend’s husband died of ALS and it seemed a perfect cause. “ALS [Society of B.C.] is an organization that’s funded strictly with volunteers,” she said. “This seems to be a grassroots organization.” ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, damages motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord. “There’s no cure, it’s a death sentence,” Lomax said. “It seems to strike people in their 50s when they’re looking forward to downsizing and slowing down.” In honour of those who suffer from the physically debilitating disease, and to raise funds for the cause, marathon participants will collect pledges to cycle on stationary bikes for as long as possible. “It’ll be a regular spin class, with great music,” Lomax said with a grin. “It’s a way to give back, using good healthy energy toward a good cause.”

Peninsula white cane club folds A service club in Sidney will dissolve this month due to lack of members. The executive reluctantly made the decision to end the Sidney and District White Cane club after seeking out new executive and membership over the past few months. “We have taken this decision as a result of being unsuccessful at finding volunteers to run the club beyond the end of April,” said president Karren Crowley. The Sidney and District White Cane club will cease in May after 20 years of services to local visually impaired residents. The club will still participate in an outing with the CNIB and Victoria White Cane Club to Butchart Gardens in early May. reporter@peninsula newsreview.com

The Archers, made up of Rob McMullen, Ethan Caleb, Liam Moes, Liam McLaren and Sandy Hughes play the Charlie White Theatre April 21 to kick off their 10-city tour.

Archers taking the time to tour Arnold Lim News staff

With a new single on the horizon, the Archers have their sights set on tour. For the first time the fiveman troupe of Stelly’s graduates featuring Ethan Caleb, Liam Moes, Sandy Hughes, Robert McMullen, and Liam McLaren are taking their show east of the Mainland – with an eye on building on “their sound” that sets them apart. “We think we have a cool sound going on,” said drummer Liam Moes. “We feel like we have stumbled across

something interesting and we hope others feel the same way.” They aren’t the only ones who believe that. Early in 2011 the band secured top spot in YouThink’s B.C.’s Best Teen Band Contest taking home the cash and studio recording time that came with the title. Keeping the ball rolling they used the studio time to record their newest single Cathedral, the money to finance a tour, and the newfound confidence to propel themselves across B.C. and Alberta.

kick off the tour, the Archers hope supporters come out in full force to fill their home building as a send off for the 10-city tour. They play the Charlie White Theatre on April 21. “We pride ourselves on putting on a good live show. We always try to bring good energy and have fun,” Moes said. “We want people to come out to our shows, the more people come out the better we play.” Fun comes easier these days. After high school graduation last June, the future was uncertain and potential for members to embark

on different paths was very real. Winning the contest reaffirmed the commitment to each other – and Ethan Caleb, one of the band’s founders, believes his choice was an easy one. “The best decision I ever made was to stick around doing what we love,” Caleb said. “Things are happening to us, it is not just a dream anymore. It is something more.” When they return from their 10-stop tour, the five hope to focus on creating a new full-length album and refining the sound that is getting them noticed.

“We just want to keep what we are doing, and keep playing music we love. Our goal is to keep doing that and not have to paint houses and drywall and insulate.” Caleb said laughing. “The best part of being in the Archers is we get to play music … We tapped into a sound people seem to be enjoying at all ages … If people want to listen and dance and enjoy it in any way – that is great.” Get tickets to the April 21 show online at www.mary winspear.ca. editor@peninsulanews review.com

NEWS REVIEW

Staff won’t face discipline in data theft case Kyle Slavin News staff

The president of the University of Victoria says no one will lose their job after administrative staff failed to properly secure and store all employees’ sensitive information prior to it being stolen during a January break-in. Nearly 12,000 employees past and present at UVic had access

to their names, social insurance numbers and banking details compromised when an unencrypted flash drive was stolen Jan. 7 or 8. A report released recently by B.C.’s information and privacy commissioner, Elizabeth Denham, concluded that UVic breached the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act when it failed to protect employees’ personal information.

UVic president David Turpin defended his employees by saying they responded to an internal audit asking that a backup device be made, in the event of an emergency. The university has already taken steps toward improving computer security on campus, including adding alarms and mandating encryption standards for all electronic devices. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Perched alongside East Saanich Road, a heron greets guests and residents to Saanichton Village. Carved by Doug LaFortune, wife Kathy Horne and son Bear Horne, the nine foot tall totem – crafted from red cedar with “Welcome to Saanichton Village� scribed onto yellow cedar – was officially unveiled to the public at a ceremony welcoming the totem, that will in turn welcome people to the village for years to come. “I love having the family together with new friends we have made and the old family sharing their blessings,� Kathy Horne said. “I am very proud to have everyone enjoy our artwork and our heritage, which is also what we are sharing here.� Showcasing a heron because LaFortune believed it was a strong representation of the area, the 40-year carver,

The way they have embraced it is great. It gives a great message out that we are working together,� the Tsawout resident said. “I consider myself a part of this community.� Central Saanich resident Ryan Windsor has followed the project

from it’s inception and was impressed with LaFortune’s craftsmanship at the unveiling. “I saw this partially completed and I was already taken aback by it then – and I am further taken aback by it here today,� he said. “It fits the character of the neighbourhood. It is simple, elegant and speaks volumes.� It will soon be joined by four others. Next on the docket is an eagle at the corner of East Saanich and Mt. Newton X roads that is expected to be completed in three months. “It does a lot to build

community and welcome people to a village where they otherwise might not be aware [of],� Windsor said. “It reminds us there are communities around us and we need to be aware of all those communities and come together as one.� editor@peninsulanews review.com

Laughs part of the game Arnold Lim News staff

The picture of concentration, Gladys Sweett grips a bowling ball to her face. Lunging forward, swinging her arms and unleashing the ball, she sends it crashing into a maze of pins that dance into the air before spilling to the polished wood floor. Cheering and applause fill Miracle Lanes, because the 94-yearold bowler has thrown another strike. “I have always enjoyed bowling, good or bad,” Sweett said laughing. “I used to be good, I am not really good anymore, but I really like it.” After a round of high fives, the modest former store manager reminisces on decades of bowling, starting in 1962 when a game at the local lanes cost 33 cents. Thousands of bowling games later, living in an age where a match now costs $5.25, she has no plans on slowing down anytime soon. “It is exercise and you are out with your friends. Being alone, it is wonderful to get out,” she said. “The best part of bowling is getting out and meeting people.” Introduced to 5-pin bowling (she prefers it over 10-pin), by her late husband 50 years ago – she started out as the “bookkeeper,”

Arnold Lim/News staff

This year Gladys Sweett celebrates 50 years of bowling with friends. tabulating the teams bowling scores with a pencil and paper before computers existed to automatically tabulate the scores. Today she lets the computer fiddle with the scores while she takes to the lanes with a seniors group including fellow 94-year-old Julia Unger. While they play on separate teams, their paths occasionally collide in a battle of the 94-year-

olds, which after decades, is still fun game for both bowlers. “We just do our best and kid one another,” she said. “It is fun bowling, more seniors should do it. I have bowled with people I have known for years.” Left-handed Unger can’t even remember how long she has bowled, but recalls taking up the sport when she was told lefties couldn’t bowl. Dozens of trophies later, boxes

upon boxes of paraphernalia tell a story of a woman with bowling in her blood. “I was pretty good. They would say ‘get her out of here because she was too damn good for us’,” Unger said. “We are still having a lot of fun,” the retired former hotel maid and butcher said. “I want to meet people and have fun, I enjoy my bowling.” After a lay off from bowling when the 5-pin alley at Town and Country in Victoria closed – she went to Sweett to decide if they could continue rolling. A mutual promise to each other has kept them at it and they haven’t looked back since. Now joined by 93-year-old Ted Greenhalgh, who is the youngest of the trio, the group of friends along with many other seniors who play every Monday and Wednesday, have no plans on slowing down anytime soon. “I am not the best bowler [anymore], my legs don’t let me go off too far … but I am pretty good for an old man,” the retired minister said laughing. “One of these days I will have to give it up, but I just go one after another and I haven’t thought about giving up. I will see how long my old legs go.” editor@peninsula newsreview.com

OUR VIEW

Charter deserves to be cherished Just three decades old, Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms has done a remarkable job of elucidating the noble ideas that form the framework of this country. By failing to celebrate the charter this week, Prime Minister Stephen Harper has shown a pettiness that belies his attempts to serve as a statesman. Harper shrugged off Tuesday’s milestone by trying to tactically draw attention to previous Conservative efforts at enshrining Canadians’ rights. The fact it was the Liberals – and Pierre Trudeau, to boot – who succeeded in repatriating the constitution must truly irritate the governing Conservatives. For sure, the charter isn’t loved by everyone. Some say it allows people to “work the system,” either by dragging out court cases or challenging those in positions of authority. They might be right, but the critics are also pointing out one of the strengths of having a legal document that enshrines our rights. Freedom and democracy only truly exist in a somewhat messy state. The very nature of rights means that their definition must be open for challenge. If the courts struggle with interpreting those definitions, it probably means there is room for clarification. The government also has a built-in mechanism for dealing with any difference in opinion. However, there is also a price to pay for enacting the notwithstanding clause. Governments, so far, have realized they need to be judicious or else risk the wrath of the electorate. The charter is not convenient for a government that wants to do what it pleases. It’s also not necessarily a pleasant document for the nation’s judges, who can find themselves put on the spot by charter challenges. The people who have truly benefited from the charter are those most in need of its protection. Canada has made huge strides as a tolerant society because minorities have been allowed to step into the mainstream. Our evolution hasn’t gone unnoticed, either, as the charter is used by countries around the world as a model constitution. That’s not to say the charter is perfect. One outstanding issue remains: getting Quebec to sign on. But, for 30 years, the majority of Canadians have benefited from having an insightful declaration of the freedoms we cherish. As more decades pass, the advantages that come with our Charter of Rights will only become more cherished. What do you think?

a persistent background toxin. Tests found levels three to five times higher in some wild salmon compared to farmed. But the wild salmon results were ignored in a 2004 study, used by Suzuki to depict farmed salmon as poisonous. His foundation’s salmon farm campaign quietly disappeared down the memory hole after its PCB claims were debunked. Moore highlighted another bit of greenwashing in a visit to Victoria last year. The vaunted “LEED” certification for green building standards gives you points if your concrete is locally sourced, but no points for using wood instead. That’s because the long campaign by major environmental groups has devolved to “logging is bad.” Here’s the latest example. Greenpeace, ForestEthics and the Sierra Club were bankrolled by U.S. foundations to negotiate with the B.C. government, Aboriginal Peoples and forest companies for the 2006 “Great Bear Rainforest” agreement on the B.C. coast. Economic opportunity was delicately balanced against preservation, and First Nations gained new control of forests. Now the big enviros have begun campaigning against their own deal. As much as 50 per cent could still be logged, they say. It seems this particular green peace is bad for their business.

Teacher appreciation needs re-think

Readers respond: May the ‘lone voice in the wilderness’ re: May’s work works for some (Letters April 4) Elizabeth May is a lone voice in the wilderness and yet she has made her presence known in our riding far more than Gary Lunn who only appeared when there was a tree to be planted or a highway to open. Elizabeth May cares and she is willing to stand up for what is right. The federal government under Harper is in a sad and sorry state when retirement for pensioners’ age is increased, the CBC is deprived and 20,000 people laid off so Harper can purchase fighter jets. For what purpose? Canada has come a long way from our peacekeeping roots. It is a sad day for us all. Lili Soleil-Garbutt Sidney

‘Credible’ key in vision for the future Re: May’s work works for some I wanted to thank Mr. Buicliu for his response to my letter of March 30, 2012. I find it necessary however to clarify a few points. To start, I have no debate with his suggestion that our air, food, water, and land require state protection. I simply take exception with any claim that the Green party will achieve any of these ends, and that Green ideology is based on hard science. If you take Victoria Harbour

BOAT SHOW

a report card one can only conclude the teachers are doing the job they are being paid to do. Does this mean they deserve more appreciation than the custodian, the transit driver that waits 10 seconds so that a person rushing actually makes the bus, the municipal worker who goes the extra mile to make sure the elderly lady gets across the work zone? The list goes on and on. If

I were a teacher this year I would humbly decline such appreciation activities as I am just doing my job. The real appreciation and gifting should be for the PAC volunteers who do not get paid for all the hard work they do. I really believe it is time to re-think this tradition or else make sure every person gets an appreciation day. Mike Barwick Sidney

the time to consider the facts, the Wi-Fi and smart meter debates are non-starters. As for the Kyoto Protocol having little or no impact on the economic well being of all Canadians – be serious. To Mr. Buicliu’s second point “how can May achieve a portfolio considering her lonely voice in parliament?”. In Canada, we already have a name for a party that sits in government, year after year accomplishing nothing and doing little more than being a constant burden on taxpayers. They’re called the Bloc. ‘Unlike the writer, I expect that Ms. May will be a collaborative parliamentarian and that she will demonstrate the highest traditions of parliament (not unlike the distinguished independent MPs that preceded her such as Chuck Cadmen). I also expect that she will seek to form alliances and relationships that cross party lines as well as advance a credible vision for our future. Most importantly however, I expect that she would bring recognition and notoriety to our community. To date, our Green-Bloc representative has accomplished none of these things. Gary Lunn achieved his vision. It’s already apparent that we cannot expect Ms. May to do the same. My original questions stands. Ms. May, is this the best you can do? Mike Houle North Saanich

Keating could have Millstream feel Re: Central Saanich decisions affect taxpayers from Saanich (Letters, March 23) I am happy to hear Walt McGinnis is fortunate to live in an area where he can conduct his business and is so near to many amenities. I travel to downtown Victoria from Saanichton

for my employment, and for groceries I have to travel to Central Saanich, Sidney, or Victoria – a constant use of a vehicle, which I don’t enjoy. While the thought of a big box store in my area does not please me, the thought of a venue like Millstream village does. This will bring jobs to our area, one where this is most definitely lacking.

Province allows alcohol in theatres

FREE CONSULTATIONS

PENINSULA DENTURE CLINIC LTD. 9769-B 5th St., Sidney 250-656-1417 4085 Quadra St., Victoria 250-658-1417

The B.C. government has created a new liquor licence that allows theatres to serve alcohol during movie showings. Rich Coleman, the cabinet minister

responsible for B.C. liquor and gambling policy, says the change will get rid of red tape for theatres that could get a licence to serve alcohol for live events, but couldn’t show movies in the same place. The new licence will allow theatres to serve

drinks in the lobby, but patrons won’t be able to take drinks to their movie seat unless the room is adults-only. Coleman said unlike the stands at a hockey game or out in a welllit lobby, it’s difficult for operators to see if minors are sneaking

drinks in a dark theatre. A multiplex cinema now has the option of designating one theatre for adults only and serving drinks, an approach that has caught on in other jurisdictions along with larger seats and tables. The licence

would also cover an adults-only lounge adjacent to the theatre. Other theatres that have live shows will be able to take part in film festivals without having to close their bar or apply for a new licence. “People are trying to save the older theatres, where it’s just a singlescreen operation, and trying to have two types of business in order to basically survive and make those older traditional heritage-type theatres work,” Coleman said. Ontario, Alberta and Manitoba already have similar licences for movie theatres. Jeremy Bator, president of the Motion Picture Theatre Association of B.C., praised the move. “These changes will have a positive impact on so many levels, including increased jobs, a better guest experience and a more level playing field in the increasingly competitive landscape of entertainment in Canada,” Bator said.

Recycling your milk containers is easy. Simply give them a quick rinse and bring them with your bottles and cans on your next Return-It Depot trip. There’s no refund because you didn’t pay a deposit when you bought the milk. Last year Return-It collected over 630,000 kg of milk containers for recycling and kept them out of landfills. Help us recycle even more.

A one-time human papillomavirus vaccine program is being offered to women in B.C. born in 1991, 1992 and 1993. “We have been offering the school-based HPV vaccination program since 2008, which has helped to protect thousands of British Columbian girls from cervical cancer,” said provincial health officer Dr. Perry Kendall. “I am pleased that with this program, we can expand that to ensure that all young British Columbian women aged 21 and under will have had an opportunity to protect themselves.” The vaccine will be available to eligible women starting midApril through pharmacists, physicians, sexual health and youth clinics, public health units and post-secondary health services. It is administered in three doses over a six-month period. For more information visit www.immunizebc. ca.

Slip into style during our

Cities protest RCMP pay hikes Jeff Nagel Black Press

B.C. cities say they’ve been blindsided by surprise RCMP pay raises that the federal government enabled just as it was signing a new policing contract that was supposed to usher in a new era of trust and cost control. Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender has sent a letter on behalf of the Union of B.C. Municipalities to Public Safety Minister Vic Toews expressing “our complete shock and surprise” over the undisclosed pay lifts, which he warned will create “significant backlash” from councils and taxpayers. Fassbender, the UBCM rep in the recent contract talks, said cities don’t yet know how much more money – if any – they will have to carve out of their budgets to fund the higher RCMP payroll. Justice Minister Shirley Bond said she has been assured by Ottawa administrative savings totaling $195 million will partly flow to cities and could entirely offset the pay raises, and possibly even lower their costs.

file photo

B.C. Justice Minister Shirley Bond and federal Public Safety Minister Vic Toews sign 20-year contract for RCMP in March. But Bond is seeking more details. “I am deeply concerned about any potential impacts on our municipalities and that this information came as a surprise,” she said. Toews has said cities were advised months ago that raises on the order of 1.5 per cent were possible this year but neither the province nor cities were formally notified of the details of the compensation package. Fassbender said even if the pay hikes end up cost-neutral or better for cities, the lack of communication and consultation is deeply troubling, as is the timing.

“You just can’t plan this way,” he said. The province signed a new 20-year RCMP contract on March 21 – ending its threat to terminate the Mounties and form a new provincial police force – after securing extensive promises of more say for cities on spending decisions. Several cities have already ratified the new contract, including Surrey, Kelowna and the Township of Langley. Fassbender said cities that don’t sign by the deadline effectively give two years’ notice of withdrawal from the RCMP and commit to forming their own police forces or partnering with existing

DRESS & SKIRT EXTRAVAGANZA

municipal forces. “I’m still going to urge our council to sign the new contract,” Fassbender said. The new contract creates a UBCM-led committee with 10 civic reps who are promised much more hands-on control of spending changes, instead of just an advisory role. Cities that sign the RCMP deal can still opt out at any time on two years notice, and a review of the contract is promised every five years.

■ Tru Value Foods Grand Opening - Cordova Bay Plaza ■ Wednesday, April 11

Cordova Bay welcomes its brand new Tru Value grocery store Tru Value, Cordova Bay’s brand new, full-service grocery store, welcomed the community last week for its grand opening in the Cordova Bay shopping plaza. Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard was on hand for the opening, along with Tru Value founder Jerry Reiner, the store’s management team, staff and customers. The 9,500-squarefoot store offers a full-service floral centre, meat and seafood department and deli counter, plus a commitment to traditional values of customer service and quality, says part owner and general manager Phil Greenhalgh. With a philosophy of “where community and quality meet,” Tru Value believes in giving back to the community. In addition to the wide selection of locally grown and produced items, shoppers can support local groups and organizations through the Tru Value Spirit Board, where one per cent of sales goes to the customer’s participating non-profit community group of choice. Store manager Rob Clarke brings a wealth of experience in the grocery business, and with his dedicated team of friendly, knowledgeable staff members, looks forward to welcoming the community into the new store!

Staff members Shawn Whitecross and Owen Clarke make sure the meat and fish are stocked and ready.

Built by the Peninsula community, soccer players have a new hub. With the building completed and only reseeding of the grass remaining, the Peninsula Soccer Association officially kicked off the opening of its new clubhouse with a dedication marking years of community support. “It has been six years, it took a lot of time to get here and took a lot of effort from the community businesses,” said David Erb, PSA president. “But it is going to be a win-win for sports and athletics on the Peninsula.” Featuring a first aid room, concession, public washrooms a meeting room and more, the new 390-square-metre facility is joined by two 100 by 70 metre fields already in use.

they had big clubhouses. We used to have no clubhouse.” The Grade 2 Deep Cove elementary student is ecstatic with the new facility and hopes to play at her new soccer home for years to come. “I like it because my mom and dad get to watch me play now,” she said of the clubhouse. “People don’t have to sit outside and be cold. It is really fun.” The clubhouse at Memorial Park Society’s Blue Heron Park is all about family and community – Erb plans on keeping it that way. “It is going to be a great place they can come keep warm, with parents coming to mingle and join in instead of being spread all over,” he said with a laugh. “I hope the Peninsula and the community and sports groups like it. It is something we can afford to keep here for ever and ever.” editor@peninsulanews review.com

Vision Matters Dr. Paul Neumann

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Eye hazards in the backyard Some day soon the rain will stop, and we will venture outdoors to do dour bit in making Victoria “the Garden City”. Before setting out to tame your own personal wilderness, stop and think about your eyes (and other body parts). Pruning and trimming can be hazardous. A branch snapping back and hitting the eye can cause mechanical damage and possibly toxic reaction or infection. A projectile, from a weedeater or lawnmower, can also cause serious damage to your body. Perhaps you use an arsenal or herbicides and pesticides to help control your garden? Or you have a pool which requires chlorine? These chemicals aren’t eye-friendly either. If you do splash a chemical in the eye, flush the eye immediately with vast, huge, enormous quantities of clean cold water; then go to Emergency if necessary. The good news is that eye protection is simple and inexpensive. Safety glasses and goggles that fit over prescription glasses are all that is required, and you can find them in your local hardware store. Our local eye surgeons would rather spend their weekends with their families than treating ocular injuries that are easily prevented. Have a happy and safe spring and summer.

PENINSULA NEWS REVIEW - Wednesday, April 18, 2012 EARTH DAY 2012 Advertising Feature

www.peninsulanewsreview.com • A23

EARTH DAY EVENTS IN THE CAPITAL REGION • Creatively United for the Planet Festival, an all-ages arts/cultural and healthy living event, is at 600 Richmond Ave. at Richardson (St. Matthias) April 20 to 22. Raising funds for progressive, environmentalbased charities, enjoy a dance, funky fashion show, family activities & more. FMI: creativelyunitedfortheplanet.com

Earth Day is a great teaching opportunity Since its inception more than 40 years ago, Earth Day has inspired millions to increase their awareness of, and their appreciation for, the environment. Since the dawn of the 21st century, people have increasingly adopted eco-friendly lifestyles and attitudes, and continued to embrace environmentally friendly practices and principles. Today, children grow up learning about the environment in school and at home. For example, most households here in Victoria participate in community recycling programs, and such households are raising eco-conscious children, perhaps without even recognizing they’re doing so. While a transition to a more eco-conscious lifestyle might not be seamless, it’s far easier than many might suspect and even easier for kids who have yet to develop a lifetime of habits that might not be so eco-friendly. With Earth Day on the horizon, the following are a few ways parents can get their kids involved in activities or lifestyles that benefit the environment. • When shopping for groceries, choose organic products that weren’t grown with pesticides or harmful chemicals and explain this difference to kids. • Shop locally and explain to kids that doing so reduces reliance nce on fuel because se products pro rodu duct du ctss don’t ct don’ do n t need to be shipped d to your comcom co mmmunity, minimizing imizing ffuel uel consumption.. DID YOU KNOW? • Conservation vatio on Earth Day Canada is a national provides another oth h er environmental charity founded easy opporturtu uin 1990, providing Canadians with nity for parents nts practical knowledge and tools to instill ecoco oto lessen their impact on the friendly ideals alss environment.

Instead, they ey involve involv lvee being more responsible esponsible when whe hen n it comes to using i our resources. • Instead of keeping the faucet running while brushing your teeth, turn the faucet off and encourage kids to do the same. This teaches kids that conservation is simple and often just requires minimal effort to make a big difference. • When grocery shopping, make a list before leaving the house and explain to kids that you do this so you don’t have to make two trips to the store and waste the gas that the second trip would require. In addition, encourage kids to turn the lights off when they leave a room to better conserve energy. • Recycling is a practice that many of today’s kids grew up with, and as a result, many of them might take it for granted, failing to fully realize the positive impact they’re making whenever they recycle. One way parents can address this issue is to purchase products made from recycled materials.
