I heard this story on NPR yesterday about a Seattle elementary school that is one of the first buildings to be built as a “living building’ in the Northwest. It will be the first elementary school in the country with the label if it is indeed certified after a year of use. This is such a great idea! To let children be the at the forefront of the environmental movement just makes sense, and educating by doing is the best way to do it. I’ve often thought that if I ran a school I’d put a huge focus on energy production, organic gardening, and general environmental education. What a great model this school will be!
