About Cool the Earth

A grassroots organization with a focus on climate solutions, our programs are leading community-based action through scaled behavior change with measurable outcomes. At Cool the Earth, we believe personal actions are essential to reducing carbon emissions and air pollution.

Since 2007 we’ve run our K-5 education and engagement program in schools nationwide. Drive Clean Bay Area helps accelerate electric vehicle adoption through workplace and community engagement and directly with consumers.

Drive Clean Bay Area

Our nonprofit collaboration is committed to clean air, a cool planet, and a healthy future for all. Through education, behavior change programs, and preferred pricing, Drive Clean Bay Area helps individuals replace their gas car with an EV, effectively cutting their carbon footprint in half.

Switching from a gas car to an EV is the single most effective personal step to reducing carbon emissions and air pollution. While helping save the planet, EV drivers also save time and money and enjoy unparalleled driving performance.

Adopt a Polar Bear

Adopt a Polar Bear is a fun and empowering online program for students in grades K-5. The program teaches children about climate change and empowers them to lead their families in taking climate action around transportation and clean energy.

Our online program is an adaption of our in-person school assembly program that has been running for 13 years. Our free program is run by school volunteers and is open to all. It is available in English and Spanish and for all communities, including low income and disadvantaged schools.
