URL: http://www.epa.state.il.us/green-illinois/green-schools/green-schools-checklist....

Abstract: This checklist offers tips and resources to help schools identify opportunities to “green” their buildings and operations, ranging from the solid waste they generate, to the indoor environment they provide, to the energy and supplies they consume. Emphasis has been placed on prevention-oriented strategies, which are preferable to dealings with wastes and pollutants after the fact. The benefits of a green school program are outlined and management strategies are included. Sections include: energy use, indoor air quality, solid waste, hazardous materials, mercury use, laboratory waste, mold growth, water consumption, building construction/renovation, purchasing, pest management, groundskeeping, and food service.
