Green Team Visits Detroit Zoo

This week 30 members of the LMS Green Team visited the Detroit Zoo to kick off a year-long sustainability partnership. The Zoo staff talked with our students about their sustainability initiatives including eliminating the sale of single use water bottles in cafes and plastic bags in gift shops, implementing a solar flower to harness the energy of the sun, using permeable pavement in some parking lots to improve water flow and eliminate runoff of gasoline into animal habitats, and use of an anerobic digester to compost animal waste into useable energy to power their animal hospital. The LMS Green Team will be developing our own initiatives to be implemented throughout the year to improve the sustainability of Larson Middle School. Green Team is a club that meets during lunches and is open to all students. To join the club, use the Schoology group code BZ643-XWGC7. Members may purchase a Green Team t-shirt online via pay schools for $9.50.
