    Lily Rainey, 12, left, and Carina Basora, 11, stand next to the baggerie they installed at Tom’s Market, which allows patrons to borrow and return canvas bags. The baggerie was built as part of their team’s participation in the First Lego League competition, and reflects the competition’s theme of dealing with trash. The team was inspired to reduce the use of plastic grocery bags, which they found through research to be immensely harmful to the earth, its animals and its people. (submitted Photo)
