Green Purchasing

School buildings and grounds are fundamental components of the educational process and children spend more time in schools than in any other environment except their home. The goal of this policy is to encourage and increase the use of environmentally preferable products and services in the Wayland, Massachusetts, school system. By including environmental considerations in purchasing decisions, Wayland can promote practices that improve student and staff productivity and health, conserve natural resources, and reward environmentally conscious manufacturers, while remaining fiscally responsible.
