What is a Green Team?
A green team is a group of employees or group of students who want to make their local community more sustainable through volunteerism.
- Volunteer to help their company be eco-friendly in their community.
- Improve the social, economic, and environmental impact of their brand.
- Inspire employees inside the company to go green.
Why a Green Team?
A green team brings value to your school or workplace by empowering those involved to understand and support important sustainability projects in your local community.
Creating a Green Team
If you want to help create a Green Team within your organization, here are some tips to help get you started:
- Get The Word Out
Send a company wide email or announce it at your next staff meeting.
- Host a Meeting
Once you have a group of people who have expressed interest, set up your initial meeting.
- Get Organized
Assign roles and responsibilities, and create a list of projects your team wants to work on.
Reach out to various organizations to set up a time and place where your green team can get to work!
