Do you or your kids go to a “green” school? These days, the phrase “green school” can refer to all sorts of environmentally friendly activities or items used at school. Maybe your school was built with solar panels and low-flush toilets or the custodian uses environmentally safe cleaning supplies. You and your classmates might recycle paper and printer ink cartridges or grow food for the cafeteria in your school’s garden. Maybe you conduct energy audits to see which appliances are hogging all of the electricity and where cold air is leaking into your school building.
No matter how you and your school choose to go green, be proud. You are helping to save the planet’s resources!
