National Healthy Schools Day celebrates and promotes healthy and green school environments for all children through the use of US Environmental Protection Agency’s Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Tools for Schools (TfS) Program.
Celebrated on Monday, April 26, 2010, National Healthy Schools Day is coordinated by Healthy Schools Network in collaboration with US EPA and the Council of Educational Facility Planners – International (CEFPI). It is the first day of School Building Week.
The 2010 campaign will focus on using certified green cleaning products which help reduce pollutants from indoor air.
This year, 10 national and 45 state and local activities are taking place to promote Healthy Schools Day in the U.S. and Canada, and four national organizations are launching major new Healthy Schools Programs.
