LAGRANGE — As Harriet Anderson Langford and Allie Kelly travel the stretch of Interstate 85 in western Georgia known as the Ray C. Anderson Memorial Highway, they see many of their works to admire.

The highway is named after Langford’s father, Ray Anderson, founder of carpet manufacturer Interface and sustainability advocate. The non-profit organization named Ray, created in his honor, works to make the road more sustainable, with pollinator-friendly wildflowers by the side of the road, rubberized pavement that lasts longer and, at one exit, solar panels.

This coverage is made possible through a partnership with WABE and Grist, an independent non-profit media organization dedicated to telling stories about climate solutions and a just future.
