Not one parent has children with the thought that the Earth will be a worse place to live in, than it was in their day. yet it seems that the heritage we are passing on is losing its sheen, almost day by day. However all is not lost, because a new generation of Eco-warriors are becoming informed and active and these children are likely to be the innovators of the future. Here at Mind Your Footprint we believe that through teaching children we can make a huge difference in their lives and in those of their parents.

 

What we do 

Mind Your Footprint is a non-profit organisation founded by us - a social entrepreneur couple passionate about planet Earth. We began this journey in 2009 with our website which is designed to inform readers about social and environmental issues. We are entirely self-funded and expect to be fully sustainable by 2015. 

We offer advice on everything to do with living a more harmonious and sustainable life and particularly in the engagement of children on this issue. With a number of campaigns under our belt, including Earth Hour, Earth Day, World Environment Day and Animal Day, plus many more, we have proven ourselves to be at the forefront of this clean, green movement. 

We believe in raising awareness of issues such as access to clean water, global warming, healthy lifestyles (including eating less meat, vegetarian or vegan diets) and animal endangerment. Our aim is to safeguard the Earth for future generations.

 

Foot Fella

Perhaps the most child friendly and popular member of our team is our ambassador Foot Fella. Hailing from the peaceful planet of Marchoon he is a caring individual who loves Earth as much as he does his own home. Using Foot Fella to develop children's imagination, we have been able to speak directly to children on environmental issues and to educate them so that they can become the Eco-warriors of the future. 

Foot Fella has been there when we have talked to kids about energy conservation, water conservation, endangered animals and waste management. With his very own website and a series of videos, Foot Fella gets to the heart of issues for children and really helps them to engage.

 

Schools

Any school which is involved in the Green Ribbon Schools or Eco-Schools initiatives are more than welcome to take advantage of our free educational resources including videos, colouring sheets, images, games and apps on every environmental topic imaginable. We can even ask Foot Fella if he could visit your school to talk to your pupils directly.

 

Parents

You are welcome to use our resources to help your children understand environmental issues, especially those which you can get involved in too, like saving water, recycling and saving energy. Foot Fella has a range of colouring pages, dot to dots and puzzles to play giving your children (and you!) hours of fun.
