This is the official launch and debut of the Earth Savers Gang.
You're probably asking yourself, "what is this all about?" Let us tell you...
The Earth Savers Gang is a new outlet and opportunity to educate our children of the importance of eco-consciousness. In the process of educating, instilling and encouraging this essential set of lessons and life views, it is our hope that this extends to ourselves as individuals, parents and role-models.
We are bringing children, parents and educators the story of the Earth Savers Gang in the form of a book series. In addition, this page will keep you up-to-date, informed and engaged in the global conversation of the importance of conservation.
We encourage you to get inspired, make a difference and allow yourself the space to grow and learn with us.
You don't have to know anything about "going green" to be a fan, to start asking questions or engaging this community. We only ask that you open your heart and mind to the possibilities that will inevitably come from your participation.
The oldest and wisest character, Olivia, sets the groundwork for the basis of the story. She explains “The Great Forgetting,” or a break in communication between the earth and human beings, bringing us to the current state of our environment. Olivia was born in Hawaii but now lives off the coast of Rhode Island. She grew up surfing, playing water sports, and studying sea life. She is a complex mix of emotion and intuition, and is ruled by the water element. She will tend to “mother” the other children as the series unfolds.
