6. While closed, many local organizations are offering online educational experiences. Learn more about the environment by taking virtual tours of the Virginia Aquarium and the Brock Environmental Center.

7. Support your local library by using their free digital resources. If you don’t have a library card; sign up for a temporary digital card.

8. Turn your electronic devices and lights off when not in use to cut energy consumption. Make colorful signs with your kids to leave around the house to remind you about these new goals.

10. Use your own utensils when buying takeout from a local restaurant or food truck.

11. Save money by eating more vegetables instead of meat. Better yet, start your own vegetable garden.

13. To save water, teach your family how to tighten up the faucet, turn off water when brushing teeth and make simple rain barrels.

14. Test your kid’s knowledge by taking this fun recycling quiz.
