"Healthy, high-performance schools mean healthy, high-performance kids," assert many of the leading state legislators that are committed to advancing green schools in their communities. Green schools offer healthy and productive learning environments while operating more efficiently and with a lower impact on school budgets and on human and environmental health concerns.

Green schools are helping to lower utility costs and operating expenses, to conserve precious resources, and to reduce waste – all of which results in an average savings of $100,000 per year, enough to hire at least one new teacher, buy 200 new computers, or purchase 5,000 textbooks. For all of these reasons and many more, green schools matter a great deal.
