The environment. This concept alone drove me to decide that Miami is the place for me. Coming from New Jersey, I really wanted to get away from all the pollution and congestion, but also to learn how to fix these problems for the future.

I had little interest in sustainability until my freshman year when I took Environmental Geology with Dr. Hauer, where I learned about climate change, energy consumption, natural disasters, and other physical processes. Now, almost everything I do is directly related to environmental sustainability in and around Oxford.

I’m the faculty adviser to GreenHawks Media, Miami’s student-run environmental media, and a freelance journalist whose passion is the intersection of the environment and business worlds. I’ve been teaching multimedia journalism at Miami since 2004.

Bring Your Own Bag

Bring your own bag to the market or the grocery store, or if you have just a few items, then carrying them in your hands rather than in a bag. The EPA estimates that between 500 billion and a trillion plastic bags are consumed every year and that many of these bags end up as litter. Once they are in the environment, the bags leak toxins into the ground and take hundreds of years to breakdown. Reusable grocery bags can be purchased at the MacCracken Market, Kroger, and many other retailers.
