Tips for answering

Tell us about the things you do – big and small – that help protect the environment.  Maybe you …

  • Recycle plastic, aluminum, and paper,
  • Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth to conserve water,
  • Flip off the lights when you leave a room to reduce energy use,
  • Ride your bike more, so you can drive less and use less fuel,
  • Compost food waste, or just avoid wasting food, so fewer resources are used to produce the food we need.

Whatever you do, tell us about it. Along with your responses, photos and artwork are much appreciated. For each response from adults and kids, Wilbur-Ellis will donate to the Red Cross, and kids who submit outstanding responses could receive $200 USD awards or $50 honorable mentions.
