greeNEWit Joins the Center for Green Schools for the First Annual Green Apple Day of Service

COLUMBIA, MD – greeNEWit joins the Green Apple initiative of the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) to put all children in schools where they have clean and healthy air to breath, where energy and resources are conserved and where they can be inspired to dream of a brighter future. The first annual Green Apple Day of Service will take place on September 29, 2012. For one day, advocates from around the world, including students, teachers, parents, elected officials, organizations and more, will come together in support of healthy, sustainable schools by taking action in their communities. The vast network of champions will demonstrate the strength and breadth of the Green Apple movement, leaving a meaningful and lasting local impact.

Three agents of change will help clean up the school grounds and build a sensory garden at the Where We Learn Matters event at Talbott Springs Elementary School, 9550 Basket Ring Rd., Columbia, Maryland. Three more greeNEWit Agents of Change will construct a planter and plant native shrubs and flowers at the Design, Build, Plant and Be Awesome event taking place at Arlington Elementary and Middle School, 3705 W.
