JCPenney's "Energy Isle" and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) ENERGY STAR Exhibit House visited the EDS Credit Union Plano Balloon Festival. Each visitor received a treasure map guiding him or her through the educational energy isle, where he or she competed in a chance to win real treasure! The annual three-day festival at Oak Point Park took place in Plano, Texas (near Dallas), where visitors enjoyed a weekend packed with food, music, hot air balloons, and educational family fun. As part of the Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR Campaign Tour, JCPenney and the JCPenney Afterschool Fund supported the McKinney branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Collin County to organize an ENERGY STAR educational event in the community.
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 Texas video. Visitors to the Plano Balloon Festival share their
stories about how they save energy and help fight global warming.
