Global Green USA's Green School Makeover

I thing we all would love to see our schools becoming GREEN, and know that our children are on a better and safe environment.  When a school goes green, children benefit – as well as the environment!

Here is some of the things that Green schools lead to:
Improved student performance. When children learn in classrooms with natural daylight, improved sound quality and non-toxic paints, test scores can improve as much as 25%. Attendance also improves! More funds for student resources

. When a school is "greened," water and energy costs can be reduced by as much as 40%. These funds can be channeled back into resources that directly benefit students, such as textbooks, computers and other essentials. Reduced carbon footprint. Greening a school significantly reduces carbon dioxide emissions that cause global warming, which affects us all.
