Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR
Today, the U.S. EPA is kicking off the start to the 2012 Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR campaign and Sears Holdings is excited to take part! If you have young people in your life there is a great way to get them involved with saving energy and protecting the environment. Get them to join Team ENERGY STAR! Sign up at: www.energystar.gov/team. Your kids could get cool rewards in exchange for sharing their energy saving story with EPA!
Also, Sears Holdings wants to wish the ENERGY STAR program a happy birthday! Over the past 20 years, ENERGY STAR has helped Americans save a total of nearly $230 billion on utility bills and prevented more than 1.7 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions. ENERGY STAR offers ways for Americans of all ages to come together to fight climate change through energy efficiency.
One cool thing you should check out is the ENERGY STARs Across America Map at: www.energystar.gov/changetheworld. The map is a great way to find energy saving events right in your own backyard. Sears Holdings has added our events and activities to the map – regions with the most participation will get special recognition on ENERGY STAR Day, October 10th!
