The “EcoEnlighten the Fossil Fuel Man” Campaign

Launches in Boston MA

About The EcoEnlighten the Fossil Fuel Man Event

The Fossil Fuel Man represents all of us. No one is perfect, we all grew up living in the Fossil Fuel Age so, to one extent or another, our daily lives depend on fossil fuels. We can all do more to reduce our need for them. The goal of the event is for participants/educators to EcoEnlighten the Fossil Fuel Man, raise his spirits, and encourage him, along with all of us to learn more, take action, and become part of the solution.

Inaugural Day

The EcoEnlighten the Fossil Fuel Man Campaign was kicked off at Boston’s Earth Day Celebration held at the Charlestown Navy Yard, home of the USS Constitution. Immediately following the event the Fossil Fuel Man made his way to his official Inaugural Celebration appropriately held at Boston’s very own Democracy Brewing.

Boston’s Earth Day Celebration at Charlestown Navy Yard

In addition to being able to EcoEnlightend the Fossil Fuel Man, this year’s Boston Earth Day Celebration included educational speakers, a live Band, children’s activities, and a chance to have some fun as well as learn what national and local groups are doing to help protect the Earth for future generations. Educational programs were offered on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and how pollution and the climate crisis is impacting our oceans. This year’s celebration was hosted by The Pier 5 Association and The Earth Day Network.  Other participants included The EcoEnlightened Charitable Organization, NOAA Fisheries, The Boston Museum of Science, the Boston Climate Action Network and many others.
