Live, Learn, Play — Tune Into Your Health and Environment

Cover of Live, Learn, Play Youth Book

Did you know that the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the food you eat can affect the way your body grows and works? It’s true. By learning about hazards in the environment (water, air pollution, pesticides, etc), and how they can affect your health, you can take charge of your environment and make a real difference in your life and the lives of your family and friends.

We have also included a link to download some environmental rap tunes for you to enjoy!
