GREEN SCHOOLS FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE
Every child deserves a learning environment that’s safe, healthy, free of harmful toxins and optimal for learning. Unfortunately, many schools across the country are subjecting children to unhealthy classrooms with poor lighting and inefficient energy usage, which costs most schools more money than they spend on books and computers. When a school goes green, children benefit – as well as the environment! Green schools lead to:
- Improved student performance as much as 25%
- More funds for student resources when water and energy costs are reduced by as much as 40%. These funds are channeled back into resources that directly benefit students, such as textbooks, computers and other essentials.
- Reduced carbon footprint
