Calling all schools & youth groups! Costa Farms is teaming up with the Green Education Foundation and Lowe's to launch Adopt-a-Plant for Your classroom this week. As the official start of the Green Thumb Challenge, the largest youth gardening initiative to date, Costa Farms is calling on schools across the country to participate in this program to improve classroom air quality, a growing concern in outdated school buildings.
For children, who spend an average of 30 hours per week inside school buildings, the potential hazards of poor indoor air quality are pervasive. “We want to communicate the benefits of indoor plants and the role they play to purify indoor air to educators and students across the nation,” says Jose Smith, Costa Farms CEO. “Kicking off this program during National Green Week 2010 affords the perfect opportunity.”
Every group registered will receive a 50% off coupon for a 6 inch indoor plant purchased at Lowe's. Enroll now at www.adoptaplant.us.
