For years I visited classrooms and led compassionate-living programs for students of all ages. The school programs consisted of three basic parts:
1. Connect children to the natural world so they can fall in love with the earth.
2. Give them background on the reality and impacts of many of our daily choices, including those surrounding our food, entertainment, medical testing, clothing and other products.
3. Provide them with empowering, compassionate, alternative choices in all areas of life.
