Comics For Conservation
A National Environmental Awareness Project of the Wyland Foundation and Comics Everywhere
Wyland's Comics for Conservation in partnership with the Wyland Foundation, Improv Comedy Clubs, and spokesman Pete Dominick of Sirius XM radio encourages people everywhere to re-examine how much stuff we really need to live a good life. As comic John Pinette says, "You can wash an elephant in 28 minutes, so why does a person need a 45 minute shower?" Comics for Conservation gives comics a unified voice to share a message about a sustainable future through video, editorials, and special events.
As part of Comics for Conservation, comics submit video interpretations about environmental related issues. The comic with the most views on YouTube receives a grant from the Wyland Foundation to the environmental or children's charity of their choice. In 2013, comics focused on water conservation on behalf of the Wyland Foundation's National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation. Winning comic John Pinette has designated the non-profit Bridges Academy for gifted students with learning disabilities.
