Why Invite the Green Eco Warriors to your school?
The Save Energy Save Dinero Challenge sparks interest in students and engages them through educational live entertainment and take home educational tools. The combination of live character based learning and the take home message provided in the book “Dinero The Frog Learns to Save Energy” allows the children to literally bring the message of energy conservation home.
Our educational tools align with National STEM standards and have received the National Department Of Energy award for market leadership in home energy conservation. The science based conservation messages can be shared with the student’s family, discussed in the home, and the teachings can implemented with the entire family on-board.
Providing simple information on energy conservation to children and families empowers families to make an immediate difference. “Dinero The Frog Learns to Save Energy” teaches responsibility through education and action. It brings the power of knowledge to the hands of the next generation creating energy conservation leaders and reinforcing the lessons. Through our live presentations and publications student’s learn: where electricity comes from, the differences between fossil and renewable fuels, the effects of pollution and global warming, what they can do to defeat the Phantom Draw™, and how to “Save Energy and Save Dinero™”. The book, DVDs, website, and magazines are the first steps in our many educational tools for youth and families. They are designed to serve as constant reference guides to living sustainable.

Name: Jack Wright Age: 17 Location: West Hartford, CT Green Eco Warrior Intern Date April 4 2015 I had always been aware of the importance of taking care of the earth, but until my family had an energy audit in my home, I had never witnessed the field work that directly aids sustainability efforts. I recall being both intrigued and inspired by the technique and the thoroughness of the energy audit, which provoked me to ask one of the workers about how they became involved with their work. Before the workers left, I was sure to ask if there was any way that I could be involved in the same field of work. One of the workers put me in contact with Leticia Colon de Mejias, the creator and President of Green Eco Warriors. I emailed Leticia right away, hoping to become further involved with efforts to improve the environment. Soon after, I received a response. That next Saturday, I began my work with Green Eco Warriors. For the past two years, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as an intern with Green Eco Warriors.
