While 64% feel knowledgeable about the locations of these natural places, just over half of respondents (51%) know the Redwood Forest is located in California, while 35% correctly said the Shawnee National Forest is in Illinois (18% incorrectly selected Ireland).

Results found 71% believe the term “green” is used so often it’s become meaningless — with eco-friendly (57%) and sustainable (36%) also high on the list of overused and empty terms.

This summer should include five pool parties in the backyard, three road trips and five trips to the beach — if you leave it up to the kids.
