National Grid Partners with the Boston Medical Center's Halloween Town in Boston, Massachusetts
October 24 – 25, 2009
National Grid hosted the Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR Exhibit House as part of Boston Medical Center's Halloween Town at the Seaport World Trade Center. At Halloween Town, trick-or-treaters of all ages enjoyed pumpkin decorating, music concerts, spooky story-telling, and other kid-friendly activities. Visitors had the chance to tour EPA's ENERGY STAR Exhibit House room-by-room to learn how to make energy-efficient changes in their homes, at work, and in their communities. Additionally, there was a chance to enter a free raffle to win the displayed ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerator, dishwasher, and clothes washer, as well as a clothes dryer, courtesy of Kenmore. Leading up to the event, National Grid worked with PTO Today, a national ENERGY STAR campaign partner serving parent-teacher organizations, on a regional 'Power to Save' school tour where youth and their families participated in ENERGY STAR "family event" nights and practiced energy saving in their communities. National Grid also donated ENERGY STAR qualified compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs to area schools, and provided support for school fundraising efforts for local community service projects. Students showcased their energy-efficiency posters and projects within the ENERGY STAR Exhibit House during the Halloween Town event.
The Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR Tour could not happen without sponsor support. Working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR program, these sponsors made this tour possible by providing key elements, including components of the traveling interactive Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR Exhibit House and local event hosting and coordination.
See the 2009 Tell Us How You Save Boston video. Visitors to the Boston Halloween Town event share their stories about how they save energy and help fight global warming.
