HISTORY OF GREEN APPLE DAY OF SERVICE
Where our children learn matters!
The inaugural Green Apple Day of Service held September 29, 2012 had more than 1,250 service projects in 49 countries. The second Green Apple Day of Service will be held September 28, 2013 - advocates around the world, including students, teachers, parents, business owners and more will come together in support of healthy, sustainable schools by participating in local service projects.
To bring awareness to this issue, and educate the public about the importance of greening our learning facilities, USGBC MA is excited to participate in the second annual Green Apple Day of Service which will be held on or around September 28, 2013.
The Center for Green Schools at USGBC has many resources for schools or individuals who want to plan a project. You can register your project online. It's not too early to start as September 28th will come faster than you think!
