TEACHING our children to care for the environment will make a difference in the immediate neighbourhood or township they live in.
Petaling Jaya City deputy mayor Puasa Mohd Taib said children were aware of the need to care for trees and forests.
“Parents must guide them on conservation and inculcate habits that will protect the environment.
“Young children with good habits such as saving water while brushing their teeth or turning off the switch when the computer is not in use will grow up loving the environment, thus reducing the carbon footprint,” he said.
