Fourth graders from Brookline launched an online petition on Change.org to get the upcoming movie, The Lorax, to have a stronger environmental message on the film's website. The petition has gotten over 57,000 signatures (at press time) and successfully convinced Universal Studios to update the website with green tips. The enterprising students not only started a petition, but they made posters, wrote a script, and shot a video.
"Even though we might be very little, we can still make a lot of change in anything we work hard at," said Georgia, a student in the class.
