Green Up New England Challenge
Created by Project Green Schools
The Boston Bruins and the Boston Bruins Foundation partnered with Project Green Schools and Walmart for the Green Up New England Challenge, which aims to develop Green Student Leaders in schools throughout New England. Schools across New England took the challenge and competed in energy reduction, waste reduction, water reduction, best green school practices, and best green community practices. Thousands of individuals across New England were directly impacted as a result of this effort and collectively we aimed to reduce carbon emissions and develop the next generation of environmental leaders.
