Build Your Green School

Green schools protect the environment, keep teachers and students healthy, and promote environmental literacy - a triple bottom line!

Greening every school in America within a generation

At Earth Day Network, we are committed to greening every school in America within a generation—but we need your help. Green schools significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions and energy costs, improve student and teacher health, and enhance student motivation. With children spending two-thirds of their waking hours inside schools, benefits like pure air quality, healthy lighting, safe outdoor spaces, and high quality cafeteria food aren’t fancy extras – they are essential. Check out our resources below so you—educators and students– can get involved in the green schools movement.

The Five Pillars:

  • Facilities;
  • Food;
  • Schoolyard & Outdoors;
  • Transportation;
  • Environmental Education.
