Global Green USA Green School Makeover Competition Presented by Pureology

I came across this Green School Makeover Contest from Pureology while browsing Influesnter and I thought it would be a great idea to enter my son's school. I am concerned about the health of my son, especially since he has asthma. A green, clean, healthy school is important to me and imperative to the success of my son. Being responsible with our use of the worlds resources is where I can try to do my part in helping this. I am very concerned about our resources and I do believe that exploring alternative means is important. I also find it equally important to teach our youth to do the same. I see this as a great opportunity to have my son think about improvements for his school and jog his little brain for how to help with saving our resources.

So right from the Pureology Website- a little about the contest:

WHY GREEN SCHOOLS?

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.

GREENER SCHOOLS = A BRIGHTER FUTURE

Every child deserves a learning environment that’s safe, comfortable and free of harmful toxins. Unfortunately, many schools across the country lack the funds to carry out much-needed repairs and renovations—subjecting children to outdated facilities with improper ventilation, poor lighting and inefficient energy usage. Global Green USA is working to address this situation and ensure that every child has the opportunity to learn in a healthy, green school.
