This is a great sounding initiative-- not only educating kids, but turning them into advocates in their own households. The power of those conversations at the family dinner table should not be underestimated when it comes to creating behavior change across families.

Kayla,  Great program. The students are our future. They don't have to follow the weak ideas of the past. They can see and make a clean efficient world that is sustainable for everyone.  Keep up the good work since these students hold our future in their hands.
