The cards are double-side printed, each card touches one area in the home where children can make a difference, the rhyme introduces the topic in an engaging way, and the "Eco Warriors Actions" detail what specifically children can do to fight climate change at home. It also includes a reward chart and stickers so children can track their progress and acknowledge the wonderful impact their actions have on the environment.

Product’s details:

  • The Eco Warriors cards is a game that encourages children ages 5-12 to adopt new sustainable habits at home, many of these habits (we call them “Eco Warriors Actions”) also encourage children to help around the house and take care of their belongings - which parents really appreciate :).

  • The content of the bag includes 10 double sided Eco Warriors cards (each has a topic introduced with a rhyme as well as the actions to take); 2 instruction cards (for kids and adults), 1 double sided reward chart, 30 biodegradable stickers, 1 set of treasure hunt clues for additional fun!). All the cards are printed in the UK on recycled card size A6.  

  • The cards are packed in a pouch made in the UK by a local seamstress who specialises in creating up cycled textile bags, from locally-created textile waste.

  • Each pack diverts waste from the landfill -  made from clothes that didn't sell in UK charity shops

  • The pouches are designed to have a dual purpose - in addition to holding the Eco Warriors cards, it can be used as a treasure bag for children to take on walks in nature to collect little treasures (notice the wristlet hoop handle which is designed for small wrists).

  • Made from denim (main part) and decorated from pieces of shirts/other clothing   

  • Main part will always be denim while decoration will vary according to availability. Shape also varies slightly, to make the most out of the specific garment, and avoid waste.

  • A double sided swing tag at the front with enticing product information is included

Our mission when creating this game is to empower children to take charge and instead of being victims to climate change, become part of the solution. At Helpful Kids we've been empowering children with domestic life skills and because we are passionate about fighting climate change (and the situation is so dire) wanted to harness our expertise in teaching children domestic life skills and extend them to benefit the environment, as well as the children's well-being, confidence, character development, daily habits and ability to make a positive impact. As Greta Thunberg so aptly said: No one is too small to make a difference.

A parents-friendly production from Shiri the owner of HelpfulKids:
As a mum of 3 kids myself, and after talking with tens of my workshops' participants, I realised my next product need to be as friendly to parents as possible. This set of cards aims to motivate children to take on new good habits, by themselves, without the need of parents' intervention, nagging and reminding. We've included two sets of instructions, one for the children and one for adults. The children's instructions emphasises the need to work independently. We've also introduced a reward chart ("I feel proud" chart), which the children will use by themselves. The rhymes and eco-warriors actions further motivate the kids as they are written in an engaging and clear way so the kids can understand what needs to be done, without the parent further explaining. So simply leave this kit at the hands of your children and let them choose the habits they want to adopt. No need to do much, really!
