About Ecos Performances

In "Ecos World," everyday is Earth Day. Ecos cares about our planet and engages children in exploring the responsibility of recycling and learning how to reduce waste.
Along with Earth Man Dan, Solar Cindy, Señor Moon, and Missy Sunshine and the Sustainable Little Stars, Ecos brings environmental awareness and responsibility to our youngest generation. Kids love Ecos and like to do what Ecos does, especially practicing eco friendly habits.

"Ecos World" is interdisciplinary, using highly entertaining presentations and artful expression to teach about environmental protection. The live "Ecos World" show is a blend of music, theater, classroom, and games all emphasizing and promoting the “green” cause. Themes range from recycling, reusing, repurposing and not littering, to teaching kids the basic principles of solar energy. Ecos also addresses the value of exercise and good nutrition, as well as pro social behavior.

Beyond traditional education, Ecos World offers guest visits and school assemblies to engage children K-3, parents, and educators in real-life learning as shareholders in being better “Stewards of the Land."
