Q: Why are you passionate about sustainability?

I was originally interested in sustainability because I love the outdoors and I care deeply about preserving the world’s wildlands. The more I learn however, the more I realize that sustainability can be connected to just about every other social justice issue. The simple choices that you make while shopping at the grocery store effect various communities around the globe, I find that both terrifying and terribly interesting. There are always ways to improve and grow and educate others and I find that really exciting.

Q: What are some habits you have to promote sustainability? Or any fun facts?
