Environment Media Association (EMA)

Environmental Media Association

LAcarGUY's partnership with the Environmental Media Association began in 2003, when the Prius was provided for celebrities to arrive at the Academy Awards, serving as a launch pad for awareness of the hybrid vehicle.  Since then, this partnership has grown to include installing edible gardens in High Schools as well as sponsoring EMA's annual Impact Summit and EMA Awards.  In 2018, LAcarGUY's Mike Sullivan received the Corporate Responsibility Award.  Other honorees included Jane Fonda, Elizabeth Olsen and other environmental influencers.  Mike Sullivan recently joined the EMA board and is proudly representing LAcarGUY as the leader in automotive sustainability.

How LAcarGUY is Involved?

Not only is Mike Sullivan a chairmember of the board at the Environmental Media Association and LAcarGUY a sponsor of the EMA's, but the two organizations have come together to create a sustainable edible garden at Helen Bernstein High School. This lush garden setup is designed to provide fresh food and encourage children to learn more about gardening, sustainable living and healthy eating all at the same time.

Winter Planting Begins At The School Garden Project

Toyota Hollywood employees along with Helen Bernstein High School
students began their Winter planting today with Kale, Brussels sprouts,
beets, onions, carrots, turmeric and chives. The parent volunteers and
students also did an amazing job with "garden maintenance" by pulling
all those darn weeds and making it easier for us to plant today. Thank
you! Just look at the photos - the garden is so alive!

In addition to their many responsibilities as students, the Garden Club
has offered to donate the garden vegetables to needy families of Helen
Bernstein HS.
