Easy Ways to Protect the Environment

When I was growing up, I loved walking our large dog every day after school. One day, as I was walking him, I took a new route and came across a street that was covered in litter. I knew it was bad to litter, but I didn't know why. I then went home and asked my mother about the litter and she told me that litter is very bad for the environment. Many objects people throw on the ground when they litter contain harmful chemicals that seep into the water and soil. I then went back and cleaned up the litter and became dedicated to helping the environment in any other way I can. I love sharing my easy tips for protecting the environment with others and plan to post many of them on my new blog!

Educate Your Child On The Septic System

If you have a young child and you have a septic tank, then you want to make sure you educate your child on the septic system. Otherwise, you can be asking for some big troubles when your child does something with your plumbing that they really shouldn't.

You may find that when you take the time to really explain things to your child, there is a better chance that they will respect the septic system and try to do their part not to destroy it. Here are some tips that you want to keep in mind when it comes to teaching your youngster about the septic system in a way that should give you the results you are hoping for.

Draw a diagram for your child and explain how everything works – Draw a detailed diagram that starts at the toilets and sinks and goes to the septic tank. Explain how the things that go down the toilets and sinks make their way into the septic tank where everything is held away from the house until the tank gets full enough for you to have it pumped. Let them know, once it gets pumped, then the tank will have more room.

Turn septic system education into a fun game - Give your child an education on the things that can go down the drains and let them know anything besides those specific things are not allowed to go down them. Then, make a whole fun game of it and quiz them. You can even offer them the chance to win a prize if they are able to get all of the answers correct. You can ask them questions such as:

  • Can a band-aid go down the toilet?
  • Can a very tiny toy get flushed down the toilet?
  • Can the plastic wrapping from food or toys be flushed?
  • Can you put your plate of food down the sink on your own?
  • Can you pour your cup of juice out in the sink?
  • Can you spit your toothpaste out into the sink?

You can make up a bunch of your own questions to add to these. You want to make sure your child gets all the questions correct, or you will know that more education is necessary. If your child doesn't grasp the types of things that can and can't go in the septic yet, then this means your system is still at risk.
