At Greenbuild 2015, you'll want to stop by the Green Apple booth (#2251). Our booth will feature lots of exciting programming, including book signings with authors and green schools champions, meet-and-greets with our Green Apple partners and the chance to see the winning student submissions of USGBC North Carolina’s Natural Talent Design Competition. We’ll also be showing photos and videos from Green Apple Day of Service projects that took place all over the world this past year.

Visit the Green Apple booth at any time to discover more about our work and learn how to engage with a school in your community. Pick up a Green Apple pin and a special “Good Apple” ribbon to attach to your Greenbuild badge to show your support for healthy, safe and efficient schools. Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter at @mygreenschools and #GreenAppleDay.
