About Green Steps Program for Environmental Education
Keep the Midlands Beautiful, Sonoco Recycling, and DHEC's Office of Solid Waste Reduction and Recycling established Green Steps Schools in 2003 as part of South Carolina’s “Resource Conservation Challenge.” This environmental education initiative encourages individual schools to take annual steps toward becoming more environmentally responsible.
In June 2010, 28 schools in 11 counties earned awards for a total of 80 Green Step projects. One school, Pine Ridge Middle School in Lexington County, was designated a Certified Green Step School for having two or more model quality projects in each of three categories: Conserve, Protect, and Restore. Twenty mentors also received recognition at the June 2010 Awards Ceremony for mentoring these schools.
