EPA Launches Fall Tour to Help Americans Fight Global Warming

Thursday, September 17, 2009

EPA is kicking off “Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR” events this fall across the U.S. empowering kids and their families to fight global warming while saving energy and money. Events include educational projects with young people nationwide through EPA's partnerships with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and Parent Teacher Organizations Today (PTO Today) in conjunction with a national tour of the ENERGY STAR Exhibit House showcasing ways to save energy at home. BGCA kids in 60 locations are conducting energy check-ups at homes in their communities and educating their peers and families about energy efficiency. Through PTO Today, EPA is reaching out to 6,000 schools across America with “Go Green Nights” to help families learn about energy-efficient changes they can make in their homes and schools to save energy and help fight global warming.
