It can be easy to forget the the Earth is in crisis on beautiful blue-sky, sunny days, or crisp, colourful autumn mornings, but the truth is unavoidable.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned as a parent, it’s that if you call something a scavenger hunt, kids will go crazy for it. No joke. Cleaning up toys, finding groceries in the store, even picking up garbage! We've come up with a fun way for little kids to clean up their neighbourhood AND help other kids learn about the environment.
