Earth Day Network, in partnership with the UPS Foundation, has unveiled the first large-scale biodiesel production facility at a northeastern school. The new facility is the centerpiece of Newton, Massachussett’s North High School’s Biodiesel Production and Education Program, and has the capacity to produce 40 gallons of biodiesel fuel per week, made from waste vegetable oil from the school’s cafeteria. The biodiesel production equipment was purchased with a UPS Foundation grant. 

Step Forward, a British health services nonprofit, is this year’s winner of the GlaxoSmithKline Impact Awards, a prize of 35,000 pounds. Step Forward was chosen for its innovative approach to helping 11 to 25 year-olds overcome problems via counseling, training, and sexual health services. The judges praised the organization’s work in filling crucial gaps in health provision, including therapeutic support to help young people reduce self-harm. Step Forward was chosen out of more than 400 organizations from around the United Kingdom.
