Center for Green Schools Featured on the TODAY Show for Earth Day

Published on Written by Posted in Center for Green Schools

The Center for Green Schools team was up bright and early this morning for the Earth Day segment on the TODAY Show, where we worked with the Green Bronx Machine to build living walls on the plaza and teach the crowd about the importance of sustainability in schools. The segment was a huge success – the students built six living walls on the plaza, and were joined by TODAY Show hosts Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Natalie Morales, along with celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis, who used herbs from the wall to create a healthy and delicious meal on-air.

If you missed the segment live, you can watch it on today.com. Also be sure to check out our website, mygreenapple.org, to learn more about the Green Apple initiative and how you can get involved in this year’s Green Apple Day of Service!
