Review for Cool The Earth Inc, Kentfield, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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!)

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way we do things at home now; we've installed CFLs, wash in cold water, compost more, recycle more, cleaned refrigerator coils, stopped the car after 20 seconds of idling... so many easy ideas have come out of this program that we have permanently implemented at home. And have made a difference!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them more money so they could reach out to even more schools!
