December APLS Carnival Announced!

Hello from the Heartland (not-so-sunny Indiana)! It's Robbie from Going Green Mama here to share this month's APLS Carnival topic.

Why do we think green? What’s our motivation?For many of us, the answer is simple: To maintain this world for future generations.

It’s a lesson told to us generations ago, but did we listen as well as we should have?

“Children are our greatest natural resource,” President Herbert Hoover (and Lisa Simpson) once said.

President Theodore Roosevelt told Congress more than 100 years ago:

….there must be the look ahead, there must be a realization of the fact that to
waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead
of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the
days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to
them amplified and developed.

What inspires you to help the next generation? How do you help preserve our greatest resource? What have tomorrow’s leaders – yes, those cute tikes or tenacious teenagers – taught you about what’s meaningful in this world? I’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject.

To participate in December’s APLS Carnival, please submit your posts to aplscarnival (at) gmail (dot) com by December 10. The carnival will be published at Going Green Mama on December 15.

As always, thanks for participating!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!
