Thursday, April 16, 2009

On April 18, EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson kicked off the 2009 "Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR" campaign to educate kids and their families about how to save money and fight climate change through energy efficiency. This year, EPA is partnering with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and Parent-Teacher Organizations (PTO Today) to work with America's youth in the fight against climate change. Boys and Girls Clubs of America will engage its young members in service projects to educate youth and their communities about the benefits of energy efficiency.
