Hippo Works launches Kids Climate Change DVD as benefit for Global Green
The film launches with a solar powered screening party that inspires kids to live green.
Venice, CA – Dec.4th 2010 – Hippo Works is hosting a solar powered screening party of its new half-hour children’s climate change program as a fundraiser for Global Green USA, sponsored by Whole Foods Venice, Seed Kitchen, Pizza Fusion, Coconut Bliss, and Eel River Brewery.
Simon Says “Let’s Stop Climate Change!” features the same beloved characters from Hippo Works’ syndicated eco cartoonlet It’s A Jungle Out There! by Denis Thomopoulos. In this half-hour feature, the jungle group goes on an ‘edutaining’ adventure that teaches kids about global warming, the food chain, carbon footprints as well as eco habits such as “the Three Rs” (reducing, reusing and recycling).
Distributed on DVD by Library Video Company, the film is also available through hippoworks.com which will soon feature a new myHippoWorks club: a place where kids, families, and classes can share their progress in fighting climate change. For every Green Dollar kids earn through playing games, a real square foot of rainforest is purchased to help offset their carbon footprints.
