The Green Schools Program is an online teaching resource for kids and educators interested in learning and practicing techniques that help protect the planet.
This downloadable teaching resource contains green lesson plans, environmentally themed experiments, and green classroom activities on the carbon cycle, saving energy, recycling, and endangered animals.
All downloadable Green Schools content (including our unique EcoHero Program) compliments the National Standards set by the US Department of Education for Science, English and Art.
Calculate and Offset Your Carbon Footprint!
Sustain Our Planet is a green consulting company that specializes in carbon emissions analysis and carbon offsetting services for individuals, schools, governments, and businesses.
HOW DO I START?
Start by creating a free personal Green Account. Your Green Account allows you to calculate the amount of carbon emissions you contribute to the atmosphere for an individual activity, or for multiple activities over the course of a year. This is your carbon footprint.
Your Green Account helps you monitor your footprint, reduce your total emissions, and become carbon neutral.
Carbon emissions are measured in tons. When you have identified your footprint, online credits can be purchased to help you offset it and become carbon neutral. These credits fund environmentally friendly initiatives (like planting trees) that offset pollution you create in your everyday life.
WHERE DOES MY MONEY GO?
Sustain Our Planet uses your credits to plant trees in areas of the world where they will make the greatest impact in combating climate change.
If every household in the US replaced its next burned-out light bulb with a compact fluorescent bulb, it would save the same amount of carbon dioxide as taking 1.2 million cars off the road for an entire year. Fluorescent bulbs last 6 to 10 times longer than standard incandescent versions and use 75% less energy because they use less heat than standard bulbs.
