We're welcoming you back to school this fall with a brand-new Everblue At-Home Lesson! This month's lesson will encourage students to think about the waste we produce, where it comes from, and how we can use art and citizen science to engage both plastic producers AND individuals in the mission to use less plastic. It is based on a paper by Dr. Katie Conlon on adaptive injustice in plastic waste solutions.
