One day to go: Green Apple Day of Service

Our weekly collection of green building clips. Share your good reads of the week in the comments below.

  • Green apples in Jordan: With Green Apple Day of Service just one day away, the green building and schools community have been sharing photos and stories. This album, from Jordan Green Building Council, is a wonderful example of green apples in action.
  • Sustainability and healthcare: 54% of hospitals say green attributes are very important in their purchasing decisions, according to a new report from Johnson & Johnson.
  • New 49ers stadium already towering almost 200 feet above Santa Clara, KTVU.com: 49ers fans and green sports enthusiasts will be glad to know that the new 49ers stadium is on track for the 2014 NFL season.
  • An old school beacon, The Durango Herald: When a coal boiler broke down in a school building built in 1911, it set off a chain of events that eventually led the school to LEED Gold. Teacher Sallie Barney is quoted: "It’s really an example of what education in America can be: a centerpiece of our community. The students are really proud of it, of their education. And as educators in the U.S., that’s what we should be striving for. We don’t need kids cooped up in cinder-block schools. We can invest – in beauty, in education, in our future."
