It is no secret that most of the products we consume are produced unsustainably. What are the underlying mechanics of the world economy that causes this? Why does this need to change?

Evan Heritage is an aspiring engineer, an avid golfer, and an okay singer. With the little free time he can find as a Maumee Valley Country Day School Freshman he plays golf and plays nerdy games like Dungeons and Dragons. He hopes to someday work as an architect in japan, but if MIT would let him attend their school he could die happy.

Julia Xiong is a freshman at Maumee Valley Country Day School and, as of today, wants to one day be a plastic surgeon. Julia has been a zealous violinist for eight years and still isn't sure how she feels about school. As a California native, she hopes to return to her homeland and attend Stanford University in the future.
