The Center for Green Schools offers communities resources to take direct action toward making healthier, more sustainable schools. Their latest project, Green Apple, focuses on speaking to parents, teachers, students, and other advocates to spur tangible changes within our community buildings. Such activities range from assembling rain barrels to planting schoolyard gardens to making simple signs that remind us to turn out the lights.
We worked with the Green Apple team to better surface that story and create an engaging, cohesive site with calls to action for their first annual worldwide Day of Service. We designed a structure with discrete spaces for various types of information, such as project ideas, assorted resources, and event listings. Together we identified and refined content previously stashed as lower-page PDFs. Each section also carries a terrific level of editorial flexibility to help support the influx of success stories and new features post-Day of Service.
The finished site is friendly and approachable—and gives visitors multiple paths to project ideas and Day of Service events. It’s a flat-out fantastic cause, and we’re excited to see how the site evolves. Major thanks and congratulations to the Green Apple team and our Drupal partner, Elly Jonez. It’s been a pleasure!
