Pledge. Do. Share. We believe that real change happens little by little--in the backyards and kitchens of people who care about the environment. Tools for Change is a highly interactive experience that offers opportunities for anyone to make a difference, big or small. The exhibition challenges visitors to:
· p ledge to make simple, positive changes in daily tasks and choices, · d o what they promise by implementing or adopting their pledge, and · s hare their new skills and knowledge with friends and neighbors. 07
Mission-driven Spending Every time we consume, we are making a choice that affects the environment in some way. All the things we buy have a story. Tools for Change is designed to encourage visitors to consider where products come from, how they’re made, and essentially, their potential impact on our home and the environment. In addition to being interactive and educational, Tools for Change is a self-sustaining social enterprise venture. The sales of featured household tools, products, and books will directly benefit The Center’s expansive portfolio of unique ecoeducational programming.
Tools For Change is open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays, from 11 AM – 3PM, and by reservation for school groups Mon. through Fri. 10
