Green Team Toolkit
With all the crossover between footprint areas and the increase in information about sustainable practices, we’ve set aside a subject area full of green factoids that represent a wide variety of tools for green team members, or any interested party, to take a look at. Be sure to share any links or factoids you think will be helpful to other green teams on the FS Google site. If other green team members think your factoids are great, we’ll add them to the National Sustainable Operations website!
