green schools is a non-profit organization whose mission is to create greener/healthier learning environments. We address issues pertaining to indoor air quality [green cleaning], reducing, reusing, recycling, and nutrition.
We offer a variety of programs to our schools. green schools uses the EPAs Tools for Schools and can offer green audits to administration. We look at existing wellness and recycling policies in place, and help our schools to move forward.
We offer staff trainings on ways to be green. We go into K-12 classrooms to educate about environmental issues and nutrition. We have songs, crafts, videos, and relevant materials for our students. We raise awareness on environmental issues as well as nutrition.
green school is frustrated by the sales of cookie dough, candy, and excessive wrapping paper in our schools. We have searched far and wide to find alternative and educational fundraisers for our schools. Instead of junk, we offer eco-friendly fashion shows, walks, and green-recycled product. We have even teamed up with a wellness company that gives a portion of sales of their green products back to the school.
We hope you will support our work and our mission!
