Green Cleaning for Schools
On February 13, the Green Flag Schools Program is coordinating a Valentine's National Day of Action. We want your school to join our effort to raise awareness on the importance of eliminating toxic cleaning products in places that children learn, play and live. This first of its kind day of action is open to any K-12 school, college, or university. We encourage anyone interested to get creative and come up with an exciting and unique way to raise awareness of this important issue at your school and in your community.

We have developed a toolkit that will help you plan and execute a fantastic event. Please take a moment to register for this event and download your free toolkit today.

Thanks for getting involved and helping to ensure a toxic free future,
Renee Blanchard
Campaign Coordinator
