The Greening Schools project is no longer being funded. Therefore, we are no longer available to provide the services Greening Schools once provided. However, the news, calendar, and funding sections of the website are updated regularly.
Greening Schools was a joint effort of the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IL EPA) and the Illinois Waste Management and Research Center (WMRC). The purpose of the project was to help schools provide a safe and healthy environment. The project was also designed to provide teachers with standards-based tools to introduce the concepts of waste reduction and pollution prevention to students.
