This. And, I didn't grab the quote, but as a PP said, "by example." I don't think little kids need a lot of reasons why (until they ask), but it's more just about how you do things. If the family always shuts off the lights leaving a room, the kids will learn to do the same. If we turn off the taps when brushing our teeth, the kids do the same.
