Excel Dryer helps transform schools during Green Apple Day of Service
By Brianna Crandall, October 2, 2015—Excel Dryer, manufacturer of the patented high-speed, energy-efficient XLERATOR Hand Dryer and new XLERATOReco Hand Dryer, has just announced registered projects for the fourth annual international Green Apple Day of Service, an initiative from the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council that brings together advocates from around the world and encourages them to take action in their communities through service projects at local schools. The Green Apple Day of Service, now in its fourth year, provides an opportunity for students, teachers, parents, elected officials, organizations, companies and more to transform all schools into healthy, safe, cost-efficient and productive learning places.
Projects organized by Excel Dryer this year include the installation of the high-speed, energy-efficient Green Apple XLERATOR Hand Dryers at Gen. John J. Stefanik Memorial School, part of the Chicopee Public School system in Massachusetts, and Norwin Learning Center, a music academic learning center located in Irwin, Pennsylvania.
Last year, over 3,800 volunteer projects took place in communities around the world for the third annual Green Apple Day of Service, generating school improvement projects in all 50 states and in 43 countries with the help of 36,000 volunteers.
Many of today's schools face a host of challenges that compromise our children's health and wellness, causing everything from asthma to headaches and concentration issues, points out Excel Dryer. The Green Apple Day of Service is helping transform schools into sustainable and healthy places to live, learn, work and play while educating a new generation of consumers and leaders — sustainability natives — capable of driving global market transformation.
Through its Green Apple partnership, Excel Dryer created custom-covered high-speed, energy-efficient Green Apple XLERATOR Hand Dryers that are available for any facility to purchase; a portion of all proceeds goes back to support the Green Apple program. The Green Apple XLERATOR Hand Dryer can be co-branded to include school logos, colors, mascots or a custom sustainability message. In addition, the Green Apple XLERATOR Hand Dryer is available with a complete line of optional accessories including a HEPA Filtration System and Speed and Sound Control for a clean and quiet air flow.
