The Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR program is helping support environmental change by launching their Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR campaign. They are asking Americans to get involved and make a change. How do you get involved?
Join the 2.7 million Americans who have taken the ENERGY STAR pledge committing to take action on energy efficiency at www.energystar.gov/changetheworld

These events — featuring everything from light bulb exchanges to community service projects to engaging local artists to decorate recycled refrigerators. This provides families with opportunities to learn about Energy Star and energy efficiency in fun and engaging ways.
Last but not least you can enter the Be an ENERGY STAR Video Challenge. Pick up your video camera and document how you save energy in your home, school, workplace and community.
Selected videos will be featured on energystar.gov and ENERGY STAR social media sites. This fall, ENERGY STAR’s online audience will vote for their favorite videos to be showcased in ENERGY STAR’s Energy Awareness Month video in October.
The ENERGY STAR Video Challenge features stories of how regular people are making a difference in climate change. Check out how one 17 year old girl designed and is teaching an after school club called Carbon-Cops to first and second graders to inform them about climate change. We can all make a difference, so show the world what you can do.
