Projects to Conserve Resources:
Reduce Environmental Cost & Impact
The cost and environmental impact of a school can vary widely depending on how the school addresses energy and water usage, the disposition and reduction of waste, and the design of the school building itself. Thanks to the U.S. Green Ribbon Schools Program, Eco Schools USA and state green schools programs, there are now excellent guidelines and resources schools can utilize to significantly reduce environmental impact and costs. Learn more about how students and staff can implement initiatives to use less energy, less water, and fewer natural resources while developing the knowledge and skills to address sustainability and environmental issues in their community and beyond.
