School facility improvements typically are addressed by school administrators, school boards, parent and community supporters, and outside partners. But one resource within the schools often is overlooked for achieving even better, greener facilities--students. Students' sense of environmental responsibility, paired with their creativity and fresh approach to traditional business issues, can help schools become more environmentally friendly and cost-effective. By initiating student projects that evaluate and tackle environmental concerns at school facilities, school administrators not only can enrich their students' curriculum, but also might improve the administration's bottom line. This article provides ideas for encouraging students to become more environmentally conscious.
