Make It Happen

1.2 million students spend their days in K-12 schools across Washington State. You can ensure they gain the skills and hands-on learning opportunities needed to be successful leaders. Our state depends upon the next generation… And Washington Green Schools is working with you to give them the tools they need to succeed.

Fresh water is our most precious natural resource, and schools play a vital role in practicing and promoting conscientious water use, in addition to preventing water pollution.


Ideas for a Lasting Change

Build community awareness and enhance stewardship efforts around a local waterway. Monitor the water quality of a local waterway and educate the school community about water pollution. Remove invasive species and plant native alternatives.

Promote water conservation. Use visually appealing posters to prompt students, staff, and visitors to think about their water use. Hold an Earth Day assembly for the school and community.

Fix problem facilities. Implement a ‘leak patrol’ to find problem sinks/faucets/toilets in a timely manner. Increase the efficiency of drinking fountains by replacing low flow aerators on faucets and re-commissioning existing plumbing with new seals.
