Global Green USA's Green Schools Makeover Competition presented by Pureology

Have you ever heard of Pureology? Well right now they are having Global Green USA's Green Schools Makeover Competition presented by Pureology. What is this you ask?
BENEFITS OF A GREEN SCHOOL
Green schools are designed, built, renovated or operated in an ecological and resource-efficient manner. Green schools have numerous benefits for children, staff and our environment:

IMPROVED STUDENT PERFORMANCE

When children learn in healthy, green classrooms – with natural daylight, improved sound quality, and non-toxic paints and carpets – test scores can improve as much as 25%.

BETTER HEALTH

Proper ventilation and the use of green, non-VOC building materials improves student and teacher health, resulting in fewer sick days, increased teacher retention and better student attendance.

MORE MONEY FOR STUDENT RESOURCES

When a school is "greened," operating costs for energy and water can be reduced by as much as 40%, and funds can be channeled back into textbooks, computers and other essentials.

REDUCED CARBON FOOTPRINT

Greening a school reduces carbon dioxide emissions that cause global warming.

WATER CONSERVATION

Green schools use up to 32% less water.

FOSTERING FUTURE ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS
When students learn in a green school, they’re encouraging a lifetime of environmentally conscious habits!

I found out about this great opportunity from Influencer which i am a member of where you review products and blog about them.
