 Message from the Founder:

                              - Pavan Raj Gowda, Fremont, CA, USA

Green Kids Now, Inc. encourages children to lead and innovate in environment care!

We should care for our planet by protecting plants, conserving energy, conserving water, adopting alternative resources, and strive for a zero waste community. We should learn from nature to meet our needs sustainably.

Clean and healthy environment is very important, so let’s bring this awareness to everyone.

Let's join together and make this planet a cleaner and better place!

Bay Area People - episode on Green Kids Now's programs:

 


Green Kids Now, is

“Encouraging our next generation to responsibly innovate”

Innovation and Environmental Sustainability should not be considered separately. Most of the issues we are seeing today with us not knowing how to use our raw materials and how to dispose of an item properly- like plastics, are because when people created products they did not consider these things.  But now we know from our mistakes and from the issues we are currently facing today, that the right way is for us to think about environmental sustainability from the beginning of creating any product or solution.

“Environmental etiquette is the new norm for innovation”
