  • The Go Green Initiative protects children&apos;s health and the environment through a unique educational experience. The program powerfully unites teachers, parents and students in an effort to create a culture of conservation at school, in homes and throughout communities.Many businesses and organizations recognize the value of aligning themselves with the Go Green Initiative -- a program that has longevity and impacts the lives of students, parents, teachers and the community at large. Sponsors have generously supported the program through financial grants or with gifts in kind. In return, Go Green sponsors have been recognized for their support of the environment and education by parents, teachers and students in their communities.
