Subject: [INSERT SCHOOL] Green Team: Help Our School Enhance Environmental Sustainability!


Staff & Administration,


To help our school and community remember to recycle and implement other important environmentally sustainable practices, we would like to create a Green Team.


  • Why should our school create a Green Team?
    • It will be a great opportunity for our students to learn about the importance of our natural environment while also helping to implement positive changes in our school.
    • Student Green Team members will encourage others to take simple actions, such as recycling and turning off the lights when everyone leaves a classroom.
    • They may also implement bigger projects, such as [INSERT ADDITIONAL PROJECTS, GOALS, OR ACTIVITIES].
  • Why should students join our school’s Green Team?
    • The Green Team is a fun, simple way for students to gain leadership skills and build experience working with a team.
    • Will the Green Team be a lot of work? No, Green Team members should not expect to spend more than an average of [INSERT # OF HOURS] hours per month.
    • Our plan is to meet once per [INSERT WEEK, MONTH, etc.] and then to have committees or individuals spend an additional [INSERT HOURS] per month.

We hope you’ll encourage your students to join our school’s Green Team this school year. Please reach out to [INSERT GREEN TEAM LEADER] with any questions.


Thanks for your support,

Subject: Encourage your students to join [INSERT SCHOOL NAME] Green Team today!


Teachers & Faculty,


[INSERT SCHOOL NAME] is about to go green! We are about to launch the first-ever [or continue our] [INSERT SCHOOL NAME] Green Team, and I’m reaching out to request your help!


As you may know, our school is a participant in PepsiCo’s Recycle Rally. A dedicated Green Team will bring us one step closer to our school’s Recycle Rally goals and increase our school’s sustainability efforts.


Here’s what I’d love your help with:

  • Empower your students. Please encourage your students to come talk to me to learn more about the Green Team and how they can get involved. Joining this team is a great way to empower students to make a measurable impact and teach them valuable leadership skills.
  • Lead by example. Promote sustainability practices such as turning off the lights when everyone leaves a classroom. Reduce, reuse, recycle!
  • Spread the word. We want to build excitement around [INSERT SCHOOL NAME]’s Green Team. Please share announcements in your classroom and post updates on your social media channels!

Please reach out to me with any questions!


Thanks for your support,
