Water Conservation for Kids

by Marie Rattray @ quiet hut

Water makes up more than two-thirds of the weight of the human body, around 50-75%. Babies and kids often have more water (as a percentage) than adults – being born at about 78%. So water is the most essential to our survival, next to air. In fact, a person can survive for 8 weeks without food but without water, he or she will not be able to survive for more than 5 days. Water is not only essential to the human body, it also plays a vital role in our daily lives. We use water to do countless things such

A Beginner’s Guide to Composting at Home

by Marie Rattray @ quiet hut

Composting is nature’s own waste management process that nutrients are recycled back into an ecosystem. In other words, it is the process of taking organic materials, such as leaves, vegetables, fruits, logs, eggshells, coffee grounds, banana peels and dead animals and placing them in a pile or container along with water. In the composting time, you will turn your pile periodically to encourage the beneficial bacteria to thrive. This will create high heat and breaks down the natural organic materials over time into a dark, rich, fertile soil that gardeners fondly nickname Black Gold. By composting at home, we cannot only

Energy Conservation for Kids

by Marie Rattray @ quiet hut

Photo Credit People use energy each day for lighting, cooking, cooling rooms, heating, transportation, manufacturing, entertainment, and many other uses. We consume a lot of energy and every year, we use more energy than we did the year before. In fact, the amount of energy Americans use has doubled about every 20 years. Energy is something that kids and grownups need and use every day at work and at school. People get energy from food. Once food converts to energy in the body it gives them the strength and energy to go to work or school and to use their
