College of Arts and Sciences: Hanley Sustainability Institute



John is a Senior Environmental Biology major and member of the Zero Waste Team. He is curious about ways we can connect the environment with our society, especially looking for ways to change and stop those among us who have a flagrant disregard for the life on earth where we coexist. He works to ensure the weekly compost pickup, bucket exchange, and mixing proceeds smoothly and efficiently, including helping new volunteers approach compost mixing for the first time.


"It is our collective and individual responsibility to preserve and tend to the world in which we all live."
