    Curation Post #4

    Welcome back! This week there was a ton of material to pick from. I am so excited to share it all with you. I think something to keep in mind is that anything you do to help the planet stay green is a step in the right direction. With that positive note, let’s get into this week’s sustainability finds! “A Guide to Sustainable Packaging Label,” Tree Hugger. I found this article super helpful; it describes all the different niches of the plastic industry. It also gave in-depth detail on each sub-type of plastic, which helped to get a better view of what things use this specific type and what to…

    Let’s Get Sustainable! Week 2

    Welcome back! I hope your week was filled with great ideas and kindness. Sustainability and climate change was in the news a lot this week, so let us dive in and explore the niches of what the media outlets had to offer. “How to Be a More Conscious Consumer, Even If You’re on a Budget;” The New York Times “How to Be a More Conscious Consumer, Even If You’re on a Budget,” written by The New York Times, was the first article I stumbled upon. My favorite aspect of this article is how it clarifies that our dollars are our voice. This means, what items or companies we choose to buy…

    Composting 101

    Welcome to my first curated post. During these newsletters, I will be giving out great blogs I have read related to topics under the umbrella of sustainability. I think we are at a point, where we all need to start making changes in how and what we consume in our daily lives. College students are broke, stressed, but we have the most significant impact on what the future will look like. Every post will have a college student in mind. That being said, let’s jump right into my first topic I’m going to cover. Composting is a great way to recycle your kitchen and yard waste. If you are a…

Here is a photo array of my trip to Cancun, Mexico!

    5 Easy Ways to Make your Room Feel Cozier.

    Hellooo Fall! As cooler weather comes to the front, we start to prepare ourselves for fall and the future tundra that is the Midwest and Northeast. We get ready for the cold, by drinking plenty of pumpkin spice lattes and taking out that stack of sweaters from the closet. However, besides the cold factor, Fall is one of the greatest and most beautiful seasons. What makes it even sweeter than the candy on Halloween, is the decorations and the preparation of a cozy retreat from the cold and wind.  Here is what I do to change up my room/ dorm room to make it cozier for the fall weather: 1.…
