Millions of Americans Join the Fight Against Climate Change with EPAs ENERGY STAR

Thursday, April 29, 2010

Americans across the country are making a difference for the environment with the EPA's ENERGY STAR program. As part of EPA's national campaign, Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR, individuals - both young and old - are taking small, individual steps that make a big difference in the fight against climate change. So far, over 2.5 million people have pledged to take action. Their collective actions would prevent the release of more than 7 billion pounds of carbon dioxide. And, through campaign partnerships with Boys & Girls Clubs of American and Parent-Teacher Organizations (PTO Today), EPA is activating more than 1/2 million American youth and their families in energy efficiency projects in their communities, schools and homes.
