iHeartRadio Earth: Together, we have the power to change the world.

iHeartRadio Earth

Welcome, iHeartRadio listeners!
We are the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing environmental education and engagement in the United States. We believe the key to a healthier, more engaged public is by making the natural environment more accessible and relevant to the daily lives of all Americans. Our work focuses on K-12 education, health and wellness, and public lands conservation. You can learn more about our history, our mission, and our programs by visiting the About NEEF page.

In honor of Earth Day, NEEF has partnered with iHeartMedia to launch iHeartRadio Earth, a new sustainability initiative designed to inspire millions of iHeart listeners (like you!) to take action for the environment. Here’s a little more about what we have in store for you:

The Environmental Impact of COVID-19

First, we will focus on the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our behavior and daily routine, and how these changes have affected the environment. With millions of Americans spending more time in their homes, there has been a significant increase in energy and water usage, as well as changes in how families shop for, consume, and dispose of food.

As the nation’s leading organization in lifelong environmental learning, NEEF has worked with iHeartRadio to develop a series of audio PSAs full of useful tips and information1 to help listeners save money and reduce their impact on the environment. Keep your ears open for them while you’re listening to your favorite iHeartRadio station!

Environmental Education at Home

NEEF remains committed to helping parents, educators, and caretakers support the learning and development of their children during this difficult time. With this in mind, we created an Environmental Education at Home page filled with activity guides, DIY projects, and online resources to keep you educated and entertained while stuck indoors. You can learn about pollinators, improve the environmental quality of your home, and even take a virtual guided tour of a national park!

We hope these educational resources will inspire you to become more engaged with the environment by bringing a little bit of the outdoors into your home.

See the Impact of Weather & Climate

No matter where you live, the weather plays an important role in our daily lives. It influences everything from the food we eat and the air we breathe to less obvious things like traffic jams and the health of our pets. Visit our Weather & Climate page to read more about these topics as well as what you can do to positively impact the climate both locally and globally.

Get Educated on Water

About 71% of the Earth’s surface is covered in water, and it’s home to a wide array of ecosystems such as wetlands, estuaries, and marshes that are teeming with life. By learning as much as we can about these environments and the creatures that inhabit them, we can better protect them from threats both natural and man-made. Visit our Water page for more information about marine biodiversity, the effect warming oceans have on migratory patterns, and how you can protect water quality in your community.

...And So Much More!

Over the course of the year, iHeartRadio Earth will evolve to include a series of local environmental events, social media contests, and exclusive content from your favorite celebrities! You can also expect a slate of new podcasts that will focus on a wide variety of environmental issues in addition to related programming from some of iHeartMedia’s most popular podcast series.

Each of us at NEEF and iHeartMedia believe that even the smallest actions can make a big difference. If we all do our part by taking some simple steps each day, it will add up to make a massive positive impact on the environment—locally and globally. We look forward to sharing more information with you in the months to come!
