Waste Not, Want Not

The carbon neutrality announcement made me feel like we’ve had an actual impact

I'm proud of my role in AU carbon neutrality. As a Student Sustainability Educator, I table at events and monitor trashcans to conduct waste management.

Student Sustainability Educators work with the Office of Sustainability on programs around campus.
