CREATING A CULTURE OF SUSTAINABLE THINKERS™
Sustainability Education for Students, Families, and Communities
We provide sustainability education aligned with national standards. Our lessons take a holistic approach to learning, incorporating environmental, health, and social perspectives in a format children can easily comprehend.
Our Live SWITCH IT OFF™ presentations provide youth, families, and teachers information on what energy is, where energy comes from, why we should conserve energy, and how to save energy at home. Our experienced team of actors, artists, building scientists, and educators use engaging tools to provide climate change information coupled with behavioral energy saving choices.
We emphasize upgrading to Energy Star appliances and lighting through HES and HPwES.
We partner with schools and utilities to reward students, teachers and families for saving energy. Our team also provides information on how schools can raise funds through state supported HES.

Green Eco Warriors offers character-based curriculum, engaging educational books, videos, and live seminars for grades K – 8. We offer the unique ability to create customized learning tools geared to both students and their families. Our dedicated staff has been nationally recognized for their leadership in energy conservation and their work with at risk populations.
As a STEM school it is imperative that we strive to lead the way in providing our students with curriculum, field experiences, assemblies, and resources that embrace the four core components (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). For the last two years we have worked with the Green Eco Warriors on doing just that. Our 4th and 5th grade students have participated in challenges that involve saving energy in school and at home. They have received free magazines and books, most notably the “Save Energy, Save Dinero” book. Our staff and students enjoyed reading it and appreciated the fact that every student got their very own copy. The magazines have useful articles dedicated to STEM topics, activities for students to complete, and contests that challenge students. We got to participate in the interactive assembly provided by GEW dedicated to stopping the infamous “Phantom Draw.” This assembly was up close and personal and really got students excited about saving energy. Our teachers have welcomed the opportunity to be videotaped providing nothing but positive feedback after the performance. This was an opportunity to discuss how GEW has come through with connecting what students are learning in school with what’s going on in the real world. Teachers also praised them for addressing Next Generation Science Standards and touching on 5th Grade CMT Science Topics. For our end of year activity GEW has invited us to the Riverfront in Hartford, CT at no cost, for teambuilding and nature based activities. We will continue to utilize...read more
This letter is in support for the Green Eco Warriors Save Energy, Save Dinero Challenge. Our teachers felt the presentation was exceptional. They felt that the topic of energy conservation was delivered in a clear and engaging format for our K through 5th grade students. The Green Eco Warriors were enthusiastic and compelling and kept 100% of the student’s attention. Our students were very excited to be so involved in the presentation. Many hands were raised to ask and answer questions. Some children had the chance to participate on stage. The book that accompanied the presentation became an immediate learning tool in many classrooms that same day. Berkshire Trail Elementary School is grateful to have the chance to participate in this energy conservation fundraiser. The ideas of environmental conservation fit very well with our curriculum. Saving energy is one way our students know to help preserve the natural beauty and environment of Western Mass. We hope to have the Green Eco Warriors back again next year. Respectfully Yours, Geri Pollard Berkshire Trail Elementary...read more
I am writing on behalf of the Sanderson Academy PTO in Ashfield, MA to recommend the Save Energy Dinero WMECO Fundraiser. The group was easy to work with for the logistics of the program. The children enjoyed the presentation and the book and learned a lot about saving energy. It was one of our most successful fundraisers! They offer great and useful products at a reasonable price and we received 100% of the sales. Please consider working with this program. I recommend it as a very easy, educational and successful fundraiser. Thank you. Sincerely, Mandi Summers President Sanderson Academy PTO...read more
