Global Green USA Green School Makeover Competition Presented by Pureology

Announcing Global Green USA's Green School Makeover Competition!

Well, it was announced awhile back and time is running out to enter your child's school!

 Why should schools go green?
When a school goes green, children benefit—as well as the environment! Green schools lead to:
Improved student performance. When children learn in classrooms with natural daylight, improved sound quality and non-toxic building materials such as non-VOC carpets and paints, test scores can improve as much as 20%. Attendance also improves!
More funds for student resources. When green upgrades are made to a school, water and energy costs can be reduced by as much as 40%. These savings 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.

I think it's important to teach our kids how to help our environment and keep (or help) our home. This is the only planet we get!
So, without wasting anymore time - Just click the link below and get started. The entry deadline is March 31, 2013.  I know, I know... soon. So, just get on over there. It's doesn't take long to fill out the entry. And hey, it's for the kids! 

Good Luck!
