On Saturday, September 28th, the Center for Green Schools (a USGBC program) will sponsor its second annual global Green Apple Day of Service. Companies, parents, teachers, students, and other organizations will have the opportunity take on local service projects with the goal of eventually transforming all schools into healthy, safe and productive learning environments.
One-quarter of the population of the United States enter schools everyday. Many of these schools use energy inefficiently and the indoor air may be filled with toxins and mold.
Corporate partners who fund local projects are allowed to use the Green Apple mark to show their support of the Green Apple initiative. Projects include energy and water conservation, indoor improvements, outdoor planting, recycling and many more.
