Green Schools has been engaging with students for over 2 months now, and we’ve had a lot of questions about planting trees.  A youtuber named Mr Beast was challenged by his audience of over 26 Million subscribers, to plant 20 million trees. Mr Beast is known for taking on any challenge, so they partnered with the largest tree planting organization in the world, Arbor Day Foundation. For each dollar they raise, they plant a tree.

Green Heroes is off to an awesome start! Last week we got to know our first ever Green Hero, and this week the saga continues with another amazing young individual. Her name is Kenna Britton and she is a 5 year old who is already wiser than most! Her dad reached out to us and this is what he had to say about his superstar!
