The Last Green Mile: Reducing the Environmental Impact of Instructional Materials
From recycling programs to water conservation, from LEED certification to community gardens, and from recycled lunch trays to eco-friendly supplies, U.S. schools have made significant environmental improvements. Nearing the finish line, what's left to close the gap on the "last green mile" within schools, offering the potential to save more than 4 million trees, nearly 2 billion gallons of water and 2.5 trillion BTUs of energy every year? Answer: Textbooks and instructional materials, which are currently printed on paper with little or no recycled fiber.
In this webinar, join education industry veteran Dave Long, environmental expert Susan Kinsella, and GreenSchools.org founder Robin Organ for a discussion on green schools, the potential impact of using high-recycled (>90%) paper, and how schools can begin to make this shift to stay on the leading edge of sustainability initiatives nationwide.
Guests:Susan Kinsella, executive director, Conservatree
Dave Long, former California secretary of education
Robin Organ, founder, GreenSchools.org
This webinar will be moderated by Paul Bradshaw, vice president, FutureMark Paper Group.
