The Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is helping thousands of schools across the country become more sustainable on September 28. The second annual Green Apple Day of Service is an event that gives parents, teachers, students, elected officials, green building leaders, local organizations, companies and others in the community the opportunity to transform all schools into healthy, safe and productive learning environments through local service projects. Together with a united effort these groups will take action in their local communities to promote healthy, sustainable schools with activities such as planting school gardens, establishing recycling initiatives, cleaning up inside and around school grounds and much, much more. Last year, more than 1,200 communities around the world participated in the first annual Green Apple Day of Service, generating school improvement projects in all 50 states, more than 40 countries, and on all seven continents.
