On Saturday, September 28th, the Center for Green Schools (a USGBC program) sponsored its second annual global Green Apple Day of Service. Companies, parents, teachers, students, and other organizations engaged in local service projects with the goal of eventually transforming all schools into healthy, safe and productive learning environments.

Projects include energy and water conservation, indoor improvements, outdoor planting, recycling and many more.
