Go Green is a new brand of Disney books, encouraging families to lead a sustainable lifestyle. It is however not only a line of books but an opportunity for families to spend time together. It is an all around guide for families to take steps towards transforming their lives to live a healthier, greener, and a more sustainable lifestyle.
This first Go Green book is for everyone whether they are new to the concept of sustainability or someone who’s lifestyle is green. The books three main focal points are; explaining sustainability in a simple and fun way, putting the concept into perspective for children and families and to show easy and fun steps to take in the green direction. All through the book are tips and fun facts connected to sustainability and the reader will find that not all is lost and a few easy steps will take the family in a new direction.
My son is 12 and he still loves to do crafts and projects. Shhh, don’t tell his friends. He recently has gotten into drawing and writing. I’m very impressed with his abilities!
He leafed through the Disney Go Green Book and came up with a few ideas for a project they were doing about sustainable living. He had to figure out how much oil and electricity the school used and how they could cut back on that amount.
While he was looking for that, he got drawn in on the section on Goods and Services Footprint. One of his friends doesn’t ever wear blue jeans because of the HUGE footprint they have. Do you know how many gallons of water it takes to make one pair? I’m not telling you, you’ll have to look it up!
OK, I have to admit, I do love Minnie Mouse and this was my favorite page in the whole book! Some adults don’t even understand these concepts!
The crafts in the book are fun and easy, but a little too young for a 12 year-old. I would recommend this book for any family with kids that LOVE Disney and need to learn how to “Go Green” with any part of their lives!
Let me leave you with this little Did you know? box from the book:
