Green Teams & Student Leadership

Green Team Guide

Recruit a school Green Team, Student Council, or other student group to promote proper recycling practices and reach your school's Zero Waste goals!

Green Team's provide a platform for students passionate about sustainability to drive positive change in their school. Green Team's raise awareness about environmental issues by educating their school community through campaigns, lessons, and activities. Additionally, they collaborate to find and implement solutions to reduce waste and increase recycling through advocacy and action.
