Exciting news! We've teamed up with Yankee Candle to celebrate our national parks and treasured sites with a new line of limited edition fragrances. Featuring six designs from six artists celebrating six parks from coast to coast, this new collection brings the parks to life. Best of all, we donate 10% of proceeds to National Parks Conservation Association. Available online from Yankee Candle, or wherever Yankee Candles are sold.
“National Parks Conservation Association is so proud to partner with Yankee Candle and the Creative Action Network, to provide a new way to bring our national parks into the homes of people across the country and around the world,” said Theresa Pierno, President and CEO of National Parks Conservation Association. “Protecting our national parks starts with being inspired by them, which can be sparked by a visit or through purchasing one of these limited edition candles.” We hope you like them too!

Our Green New Deal campaign premiered on March 14, 2019 in Washington D.C., at Bold V. Old, a daylong convening where speakers including Stacey Abrams, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris discussed bold ideas for our biggest problems, including the Green New Deal. On March 16 In Oakland, CA, Creative Action Network joined artists and activists at the Green New Deal Create-A-Thon, where youth artists from the Sunrise Movement and others worked on new designs for the collection. Youth activist Rio says that after seeing videos of Greta Thunberg leading student climate strikes in Europe, “me and my sister were empowered to make some sort of difference.” Rio and his sister Maddy recently rose to internet stardom when their student group confronted Senator Feinstein about the Green New Deal a few weeks ago. Maddy says she is now “trying to make my voice be more heard, go to marches, and more creative stuff, definitely!”
