Time4Learning encourages parents to "go green" by choosing a paperless curriculum. Not only will large families drastically reduce waste, but parents will also be setting an important example about making greener choices.
(PRWEB) April 23, 2010 -- The term “going green” is the catch phrase of recent years. But unlike most catch phrases that spread like wildfire and eventually slow, the idea of “going green” has picked up speed and changed the way families live. Communities are quickly shifting from being aware to taking environmental responsibility, and they’ve adopted “green” habits into everyday life as a result.
Whether or not families realize it, they all participate. Every time an email is sent in the place of a letter, both paper waste and the fuel required to ship it are being conserved. Businesses help consumers make greener choices by offering recycle bins, reusable shopping bags, nontoxic cleaning products, energy-saving light bulbs, fuel efficient (and hybrid) cars, online bill-pay options and paperless curriculum.
That’s right... paperless curriculum.
Just in time for Earth Day 2010, Time4Learning received a prestigious Green Certification from the Institute for Green Business Certification (IGBC), for its environmentally-friendly business practices and paperless product delivery.
Time4Learning offers a great solution to the paper mountain pile-up. Their animated lessons are both presented and completed online. Printable worksheets are available, but parents only need to print what they find useful. Automated grading and detailed reporting makes record keeping simple (and paperless).
While "going green" is a nice feature of an online curriculum, the benefits of Time4Learning go much further than just being Earth-friendly.
Homeschooling parents have the opportunity to make a green choice by selecting a paperless curriculum for their children. In traditional schools, students are required to use a long list of supplies. But homeschoolers can create a virtually paperless homeschool environment if they choose to. And in going paperless, they’re teaching kids about the importance of greener living.
More and more families are looking for ways to be environmentally conscious, and choosing a paperless curriculum is a good beginning. Not only can families drastically reduce waste, but they will also be setting an important example about making greener choices. After all, it’s the next generation that will be creating new and innovative ways of preserving the planet. Choosing a green curriculum is a great way to start.
Time4Learning has helped tens of thousands of families. Why not yours?
