The Pamela Positive: “Shame on You, Aunt Pamela, That’s a TREE”February 9, 2012
“Shame on You, Aunt Pamela, that’s a TREE. We can’t hurt the trees!”
A few years ago, my niece Lindsey gave me a great talking to. She was 5 or 6, and needed help in the restroom, so off we went. As we finished up, I pulled two paper towels to dry my hands.
“Shame on you, Aunt Pamela. That’s a tree! We can’t hurt the trees!”
I asked her where she learned that important lesson.
“In school. They teach us paper comes from trees, and we need to keep our trees.”
Anyone who doesn’t have hope for our future should rethink. What a wonderful opening our world is facing where we teach elementary kids the connection between paper and our living trees…to be conscious of conserving, so that Lindsey and others grow up with conservation being a natural part of their lives.
There is a new standard of living being created, and not only our youth, but our elementary school children, are leading the way.
