AP Environmental Science students set individual environmental goals aiming to reduce their impact on the environment as much as possible. Mrs. Lindsey invited them to join her on quitting disposable straws so each one got a reusable one. While these changes are small, when everyone does it the impact is BIG! Will you join us? Think about little things you can do to help reduce your impact on the environment.
