If our society continues to consume and waste resources at its current rate, our planet's future will be in trouble. Our challenge invites you to join us in becoming part of a solution. The 7th grade students at LaGrange Highlands Middle School challenge you to be a more sustainable citizen around your school and community by finding solutions that can reduce waste.
