Welcome to the Better Back to School Brigade
Creating change takes a community, and we'd love you to be a bigger part of ours! Between August 15 and September 15, the Queen of Green's #BetterBackToSchool Brigade will address waste-free lunches, green school supplies, detoxifying your kids' learning environments and outdoor learning, with a strong focus on time spent outdoors.
And of course, we'll have wonderful, green-living giveaways!
What's the Queen of Green Better Back to School Brigade?
It's a coalition of fabulous eco-bloggers and advocates who are dedicated to creating healthy learning environments for our kids. Many of us are writing about — and working toward — the same things. Let's share the knowledge, build on each other's stories and create a movement greater than the sum of its parts!
Between August 15 and September 15, you'll have opportunities to engage with the Better Back to School Brigade campaign through guest submissions to the Queen of Green blog, tweet ups, social-media events and giveaways. We're even working on a webinar with a world leader on the importance of nature for kids!
How do you get involved?
Bloggers, brands and organizations:
1. Email me to join the brigade! I'll respond with suggested blog topics, dates, connectivity tools and giveaway specifics.
2. Grab the brigade badge, shown above, for your blog.

Parents, teachers and everyone else:
1. Sign up for the Queen of Green digest for updates with great tips, resources and giveaways.
Our community is rich in knowledge and passion. I am excited about the potential of the Better Back to School Brigade to showcase this and inspire others to move toward green living!
Looking forward to working with you!
