Green Schools

Person-BlackboardPay attention class: Each school is like a small city and school districts like a state.

There are heating and cooling systems, kitchens, students, faculty and staff, playground equipment, dry board markers, cleaning products, reams of paper, gymnasium lights, purchasing policies, garbage  contracts and recycling dumpsters.

Teachers are busy enough without adding recycling to their plates, and yet consistently school personnel have proven they are ready, willing and able to take on resource conservation and build it into the practices and policies of their schools and districts.

Teach your children well…feed them on your dreams.

– Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young
