Through school-based action teams of students, administrators, educators and community volunteers, Eco-Schools combines effective "green" management of the school grounds, facilities and the curriculum.
Our new Eco-Schools USA Handbook is designed to provide a streamlined resource for those schools just starting their sustainability journey and for those who are looking for a refresher or answers to specific questions. View the entire handbook, or download and print sections as necessary. Also, be sure to visit our new Toolkit page, with easy access to some of the most frequently used forms.
