Partner Profile
Grace Church School (GCS) works towards reducing their carbon footprint on many levels. GCS receives all of its energy through renewable sources. The school is actively looking for ways to reduce its energy use. The school participates in the Green Cup Challenge and with the Department of Sanitation, such as the Golden Apple Awards. GCS seeks to educate the community about behavioral changes that can impact energy use. The school's switch to green power and energy reduction has not only reduced the school's carbon footprint, it saved the community money.

"Throughout the school, students have designed reminders on laminated paper, located on light switches and monitors and high-traffic areas, reminding students and adults to switch off the lights when not in use. The children who joined our middle school Green Team have been working on understanding the energy-use relationships between the classrooms, the whole campus, and the community; trying to create positive impacts where they can. Our kitchens have reduced energy use and earned a Green Restaurant Certification. We have recently begun developing high school service learning programs where students will mentor younger community members in developing more sustainable habits. " -Kim Chaloner, Dean of Community Life
