News Release


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Friday, February 25, 2011

Interactive game drives conservation lessons home

The City of Bellevue has launched an interactive website featuring a house where kids can play while learning how to reduce their carbon footprint.

At Carbon Yeti's House, targeted for fourth, fifth and sixth grades, users find the colorful house of Carbon Yeti, a large, hairy creature learning to reduce its impact on the environment. With bouncy music in the background, visitors can click on different rooms and put together puzzles, play environmental games, calculate their carbon footprint and submit a Smaller Footprint Pledge online.

A playful part of the city's environmental stewardship initiative, the cartoon Carbon Yeti was introduced in 2008 as part of a school outreach program, featured in displays and presentations.

The site was tested by Bellevue school children, and changes were made based on their feedback. Carbon Yeti has his own Facebook page.
