Day Of Service
Green Apple is an initiative of the Center for Green schools at USGBC to put all children in schools
where they have clean and healthy air to breathe, where energy and resources are conserved, and
where they can be inspired to dream of a brighter future.
We know how to create high performing schools that save hundreds of thousands of dollars and provide
safer learning environments for our children. But they can’t do it alone.
“Through long-term and careful planning, high quality educational environments can instill a sense of
pride, engage students in learning, and encourage strong parental involvement. Every child and school
employee has the right to a school with healthy air to breathe and conditions that foster academic success.”
Dennis Van Roekel, President,
National Education Association
