Growing Passion, Reducing Impact

Being able to be part of this is just an incredible feeling.

AU becoming carbon neutral instills me with such a feeling of pride. I've worked on so many different aspects of sustainability-social media promotion, sustainability-themed trivia night, and the Waste Race, a competition between residence halls to divert trash away from landfill and into compost and recycling-so reaching this milestone still gives me goosebumps.
