A new mayors’ alliance hopes to help K-12 students read Green Eggs and Ham in green buildings and classrooms.

Two mayors from opposite ends of the country announced Thursday the formation of the Mayors’ Alliance for Green Schools — an initiative to support the construction and modification of K-12 schools to reduce carbon emissions and increase their commitment to conservation.

The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) is supporting the initiative by providing 79 local USGBC chapters to help the Alliance’s cause.
