Just in time for Earth Day Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! is getting into the spirit with Wubbzy Goes Green! What’s even better is that they have partnered with Alliance for Community Trees to make this Earth Day even greener.
For every Wubbzy Goes Green DVD that is sold, Anchor Bay will donate $1 to the ACT in order to help support planting trees in playgrounds and schools. Trees are important for many reasons. Here are some facts from the Alliance for Community Trees:
- Asthma rates among 4- and 5-year-old children fell by 25% for every extra 343 trees per square kilometer
- Students perform better in tests when surrounded by trees and grass
- Neighborhoods with more trees experience less crime
- Cleaner air: Trees help trap and remove tiny particles of soot and dust, which otherwise damage human lungs, and tree root networks filter contaminants in soils producing clean water. Four million trees would save $20 million in annual air pollution cleanup
- Energy saver: The cooling effects of trees can save millions of energy dollars! Three to four shade trees located strategically around a house can cut summer cooling costs by 30-50%!
- Healthier children: Performing activities in green settings can reduce children’s Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder symptoms.

They teach children not only about taking care of our Earth, but about taking care of the different creatures in it and several other character traits including responsibility. It is available at Amazon for about $14.
