The Green Apple Day of Service is a fun, interactive way to engage students and community members in an activity that showcases sustainability. This event was developed by the US Green Building Council's Center for Green Schools in 2012 and has involved nearly 1 million people in schools spanning over 70 countries.

Your project should make measurable change on one or more of the three pillars of a green school: environmental impact, health and wellness, and environmental and sustainability literacy. Each school project can be different. There are many project ideas listed on the Green Apple Day of Service website.
