Green Apple Day of Service
Dia de Servicio, Manzana Verde

Registrations are pouring in from all over the world - is your event on the map?
From a sustainability & health 5k run in Providence, Rhode Island, to a school recycling program kickoff in Victor, Idaho, to a nature-inspired mural and flower garden in Isabela, Philippines, students, teachers, and community members are coming together for this year's Green Apple Day of Service!

Here are three things you can do to contribute to this groundswell of action supporting healthy, safe, and efficient schools:

  1. Connect a teacher to the resources they need to bring Green Apple Day into their classroom. 
  2. Learn about green schools and earn free continuing education hours. 
  3. Recognize the work you’re doing in your own community – and tell us about it.
