Make our schools healthy, sustainable places for kids to learn and play.
Green Schools Initiative works to transform the environmental health and sustainability of K-12 schools. We offer training, support, and advocacy to reduce the environmental footprint of schools through student-led actions that engage the whole school community.
1. A typical school emits 2,000 tons of carbon/year, generates TONS of waste, uses TONS of paper & toxins, serves lousy food, and is an asphalt jungle.
2. Schools should be community models of sustainability that teach our kids skills needed for a healthy world.
