The Internet: Helping kids go green

A review of sites that teach children about the environment.

HealthyChild.org keeps both parents and kids aware of environmental changes. The 20-year-old organization also offers information on everything from food and nutrition to nontoxic and natural products.

EPA.gov, the website of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, has created a Kids Club. The site provides educational games, pictures, and stories to help children learn about the environment and how to protect it.

EWG.org, the online home of the Environmental Working Group, helps make sense of health and pollution scares. The site has a special section just “For Parents,” which includes tips and tools such as an Auto Asthma Index and a Tuna Calculator that calculates safe mercury consumption according to body weight.
