Generation Green is growing up fast and keeping a watchful eye on the polluting parents of the world. The NY Times reports that the eco-kids have different wishlists from those who came before them; they want their household equipped with reusable shopping bags, energy-saving lightbulbs, solar panels and a hybrid car. Their eco, and sometimes expensive, demands are a product of everything from their education to pop culture--and they're spouting out phrases like, "Every day is Earth Day" whenever they hear the car idling for too long (good thing Santa runs on reindeer power!). One parent thinks his son "takes it too far," as he's even foregone using his precious night lights! Will these miniature eco-troops grow out of their militant standards, or will they keep going until they save the world, one parent at a time?
