Pureology is playing a major role in supporting the environment by sponsoring the Global Green USA Green School Makeover Competition, a competition where the ultimate goal is to create healthier and more energy-efficient schools. “Pureology is proud to have supported Global Green’s extraordinary programs over the past two years and to increase our support in 2011 by presenting Global Green USA’s Green School Makeover Competition to help improve the lives of students while educating parents, teachers, students, and the public about the importance of creating healthy green classrooms,” says Shae Kalyani, vice president of marketing for Pureology. More than 200 public, private, and charter schools competed with entries for green improvements that included planting organic vegetable gardens, creating recycling programs, and adopting energy-efficiency upgrades. Now, 10 finalists have been announced and the grand prize winner will be selected on Dec. 6. The grand prize winner will receive $65,000 for school renovations and an additional $65,000 worth of technical assistance. Four runner-up schools will be awarded $2,500 each to make their schools more sustainable.
