Project Description: The Eco-Conscious Cartoons project is an animated series and books created to teach kids that no matter how young or old you are, everyone has the power to make a positive change, and that the smallest actions can lead to the biggest changes. This project premiered the animation during a global TEDWomen Talk in 2013, and Adobe has featured the work during Women’s History Month. This project believes children’s books and cartoons inspire youth to use their creativity, passion, voice, and problem solving skills to take steps toward a greener future.
