"Clean air, water and land are not a birthright, they're our responsibility.  Burying and burning waste are antiquated practices that have come with serious consequences.  It's time for change.  We must implement change by teaching sustainability at all levels of academic curriculum and implementing in business and our daily lives.  Do your part and make responsible  decisions for the waste you generate.   The quality of  life ultimately depends on  the  health of our  planet.  Our future is worth the fight!"
