Sponsored by ECOS® in partnership with Green For All, a new youth art program aims to educate and activate kids to imagine a zero-emissions future in their communities.
CYPRESS, Calif., April 26, 2019 -- Earth Friendly Products®, maker of ECOS® Laundry Detergent and more than 200 other environmentally friendly products, announced today a year-long collaboration with Oakland-based Green For All, which seeks to build an inclusive green economy that works for all people and communities. Sponsored by ECOS® in partnership with Green For All, #FuelChange4Kids is a new youth art program that seeks to engage and inspire children to be part of the movement towards a greener future. The program brings the message of Green For All's #FuelChange campaign to kids, educating them on the issue of transportation pollution and encouraging them to be active change-makers for bringing zero-emissions buses, cars and trucks to their neighborhoods.
"The health and wellness of people and the planet are at the heart of why we make ECOS plant-powered cleaners," said Kelly Vlahakis-Hanks, President and CEO of Earth Friendly Products. "It's always been our mission to make green cleaning accessible to everyone through safer, affordable products. We are honored and excited to partner with Green For All to support the important work they do to make the green economy work for everyone through a program to inspire the next generation of leaders in this fight for a greener future."
Launching as part of the company's Earth Month activities this year, #FuelChange4Kids will be a component of the ECOS® presence at EarthX 2019, the world's largest environmental expo, taking place April 26 through 28 at Fair Park in Dallas, Texas. Attendees can find ECOS® at Booth 3440 in the Automotive Building, and kids can get a hands-on ECOScience experience with ECOS® plant-powered cleaners, learn more about #FuelChange4Kids and pick up a worksheet for the art contest submission at Booth 7205 in the Food & Fiber Building.
"Our #FuelChange campaign engages communities of color who have traditionally been left out of the climate conversation and supports their leadership in creating solutions where they live," said Michelle Romero, National Director of Green For All. "Through the #FuelChange4Kids Art Program, with ECOS we are creating an opportunity to engage youth of color in the fight towards a zero-emissions future. We can't wait to see where their creativity and imagination take us."
The #FuelChange4Kids online submission portal will officially launch May 1 with a July 24 deadline for entries. To learn more about Green For All's #FuelChange initiative, visit: https://www.greenforall.org/fuelchange#
