My interest in being more eco-friendly began with researching the zero waste lifestyle. When I realized how much waste is produced every single day, reducing my waste quickly became my newest personal research project. It only took a few articles to open my eyes to a completely new approach as a consumer. Now, by no means do I live a “zero waste” lifestyle, nor am I vegan. However, thinking sustainably has become part of my daily life. It led me to join my university’s environment committee and seek out other opportunities (such as the one here at Nutritower!) where I can start conversations about sustainability.
