#FuelChange 4 Kids Art Program

#FuelChange4KIDS Art Program

Sponsored by Earth Friendly Products®, maker of ECOS®, in partnership with Green For All

Tailpipe pollution from diesel and gas-powered cars, trucks, and buses is making kids and communities sick. There are now more premature deaths from traffic-related pollution than traffic accidents.

We have the power to bring clean air to our neighborhoods by going electric. But we need your help!

Green For All is looking for talented young artists across the country to imagine a zero-emissions future in their community. What does it mean to #FuelChange in your neighborhood? Art has the power to move people to action and change public opinion. We need your help to mobilize our movement for a zero-emissions future that improves health and strengthens communities.

Thought starters to spark your imagination:

  • How do people get to school and work where you live? What modes of transportation do you see in your neighborhood? Are there transportation choices that are not available in your neighborhood?
  • How do dirty cars, trucks, and buses impact kids’ health? What are the benefits of electric alternatives?
  • Why is it important to protect our air and neighborhoods from pollution?
  • What would a zero-emissions future look like in your community?
  • What would need to happen to bring clean cars, trucks, and buses to your neighborhood?
  • What does the sustainable future you’re fighting for look like?

Tips for submissions:

  • Artwork may be cropped to fit promotional materials, so keep your main images, theme, or message well within the margins of the page.
  • Avoid using too many words or text in the artwork.
  • Use vibrant colors.
  • Try to clearly show the solution in your artwork.
