Climate disruption and global warming is such a daunting issue to attack...Bring in Cool the Earth! The coupon system introduced into our children's elementary school creates bite size, tangible, every day activities where step by step, laundry load by laundry load,light switch by light switch...we make a difference. From these easy actions, inspiration blossoms and confidence is created in the belief that we can bring about change ....with this new mind set great social change begins! Thank you
This is an amazing program that's turnkey for your child's school. We easily implement their ideas, they have great kid-friendly communications and ideas, and IT WORKS. It starts at the school, but definitely changes your actions at home too. My girlfriends and I joke about our kids being brainwashed about being green, the kids now get on our case if we're doing something not eco-friendly now, because they have learned so much from Cool the Earth's programs at our school. (Which is great!)
As Cool The Earth co-ordinator for my kids' public school, I've been able to experience first-hand the power and enthusiasm that our children have for causes like conserving our earth's resources. With a program like CTE, we are given a blueprint for communication with and among the kids, their families and the school community. Its been a great program and I'm interested to see how it evolves along with our increased and changing needs.
Review from Guidestar
The Cool the Earth Program helped us kick off our school's Green Initiative. The program enabled us to successfully engage parents, teachers, and children around a common goal. The materials were accessible, easily customizable, and the staff were very helpful.
Our experience has been amazing. The staff at CTE is dedicated to their volunteers and the schools in the program. They are responsive and creative in their trouble shooting and problem solving.
As E.D. of Waterplanet Alliance, met with Cool The Earth several times and hosted meetings they have attended on climate change and public education. One of the best organized, fastest developing non-profits I've had experience with. Particularly inventive work educating young children on the climate crisis in a positive way
