USGBC NJ and the NJ School Boards Association invite you to participate in a national signature Green Schools initiative known as Green Apple Day of Service.
Green Apple Day of Service, created by USGBC in Washington DC, gives parents, teachers, students, companies and local organizations the opportunity to transform all schools into healthy, safe and productive learning environments through local service projects.
USGBC’s Green Apple Day of Service is a global initiative that supports our shared mission to green every school within a generation. Since 2012, more than 6,000 communities in all 50 states and over 40 countries around the world have participated in the Day of Service.
This is a terrific opportunity to get local community, corporate and expert help to kick-off a special sustainability project at your school.
The Green Apple website provides an online registration point, and lots of resources, graphics and templates. In addition, we (the USGBC New Jersey Chapter) will be helping a number of NJ schools to find corporate volunteers for their projects.
Projects ideas include: conducting a class presentation about any sustainable products or services your company provides, creating a rain garden; painting rain barrels; holding and judging a poster/art contest; conducting an energy audit; hosting a recycling drive; or holding a tour of a green school; just to name a few.
Although the “official” Green Apple Day of Service for this year is Saturday, September 26, 2015, schools are free to hold their event any time during the 2015-2016 school year.
Please contact us ASAP if you would like to be matched up with one of our corporate or member volunteer teams: firstname.lastname@example.org.
