50 Online Resources for Eco-Friendly Schools

"Schools produce lots of things – honor roll students, star athletes, influential teachers and some of the largest amounts of waste. Educational settings have been known to waste energy, food, water and paper on a daily basis."

"Thanks to the ongoing green movement, many schools now understand their impact on the environment and how it can be improved. Today’s eco-friendly schools are sustainable, energy efficient and better for the planet. With baby steps and big efforts, any school can transform into an eco-friendly environment and become an example for other institutions."
