what causes people to be wasteful?

kids grow up being messy
those kids turn into messy teens
those teens become messy adults.  

schools and parents do not do enough to promote conservatism.  kids aren't taught from day one what their wastefulness can cause to the world.  kids are taught that leaving hallway lights on is ok for their safety so they aren't scared of the dark when they should be taught that the dark is nothing be afraid of and that leaving on those lights can effect the power which eventually causes bad effects to the earth and the atmosphere.  i remember the first time i heard of water conservation in 4th grade, i became frightened of causing water drought and everyday for a while after would only take showers but would turn the water on and off in an effort to not waste it.  imagine the effect we COULD have made on the planet if we were taught very early how harmful our wastefulness really is.
