At the end of 2008, Teva was generously gifted the Topsy Turvy School Bus. Teva has since converted the bus to run on used vegetable oil and outfitted the interior to serve as a Jewish environmental education learning space.
Over the last three years, Teva conducted three epic bus programs for over 2,500 participants of all ages. The first tour in 2009 was in honor of Birkat Hachamah, the birthday of the sun, and traveled across the Northeast and also to Cleveland. The second tour, in partnership with Hazon, went across the country to California and back, to raise awareness for the Jewish Climate Change Initiative. Teva’s 2011 bus tour went to the Southeast from February to April and was entitled from Purim to Freedom.
These mind-bending adventures have stretched imaginations, showing communities the power we have as individuals to change the course of history and flip the environmental damage we see around us on its head! And what better way is there to spread this message than on a Topsy Turvy School Bus with Teva educators?
