In today’s day and age, going “green” is almost a norm. Eco friendly items can be purchased for your home or office both in store and on hundreds of websites online. But why then have we as a society not yet made the same changes in our schools?
This is an especially important question because there are so many benefits that can be gained from adopting green practices in educational settings. By switching to eco-friendly school furniture, high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools can teach the importance of sustainability to their students and also do their part to protect the environment.
The Benefits of Going Green in Schools
Switching to eco friendly school furniture is an investment, but one that can be incredibly rewarding. Here are some of the ways that your school can benefit from the change:
Encourages eco-friendly behavior: As we head towards a future where natural resources are becoming increasingly scarce, it only makes sense to empower our youth with information about the challenges society will be facing when they become adults. After all, they will be the individuals who will have to live with and tackle important environmental problems. Eco-friendly school furniture provides another way to bring the topic of environmental conservation into the classroom.
Protects animals and nature: According to an article by Time Magazine, humans harvest approximately 15 billion trees each year.1 By purchasing school furniture made from responsibly sourced materials, schools can do their part to reduce deforestation and protect the animals and plants in natural habitats.
