It’s possible for kids as young as 4 or 5 to understand environmental responsibility. Sure, they aren’t going to understand global warming, but they can see and understand how littering affects the world around them. Explaining things in terms of “nice” (flowers and grass and trees) and “yucky” is usually pretty effective, but the best way to teach is to model good behavior. Even if they don’t understand why someone needs to recycle at the moment, they will eventually, and understanding the “need to” part is the key in the meantime.
I think environmentalism, like many other things (math, language) can and should be taught at a young age. When good practices start early on, they are much more likely to stick.
