Global Green USA Green School Makeover Competition Presented by Pureology


When a school goes green, children benefit—as well as the environment! Green schools lead to:

  • Improved student performance. When children learn in classrooms with natural daylight, improved sound quality and non-toxic building materials such as non-VOC carpets and paints, test scores can improve as much as 20%. Attendance also improves!
  • More funds for student resources. When green upgrades are made to a school, water and energy costs can be reduced by as much as 40%. These savings can be channeled back into resources that directly benefit students, such as textbooks, computers and other essentials.
  • Reduced carbon footprint. Greening a school significantly reduces carbon dioxide emissions that cause global warming.
I feel every child deserves a learning environment that’s safe, comfortable and free of harmful toxins. So many of our schools are old and either have not seen any updates or budgets cause updates to be limited. The Global Green USA Green School Makeover Competition Presented by Pureology will give one school a chance to makes changes and improve their school for generations to come.

Spread the word, enter your school (, make change happen!
