Hi! My name is Tessa Fountain and I am from Millbrook, New York. I am currently undeclared, but am thinking about majoring in English. To me, sustainability is really about trying to make the Earth a place where life can be sustained and can thrive for years to come. Currently, I don’t believe that we, the people of this planet, are generally doing enough to ensure the futures of future generations. On a personal level, I know that we can all make changes to try and live more sustainably. Some of these changes that I am aware of and try to implement include: following the three R’s (reduce, reuse and recycle), trying to buy less single use items, trying to compost and reducing or eliminating intake of animal products. While a lot of the issues and pollution of our planet are caused by larger corporations, on a personal level, I think we can all try and act in a more sustainable way and can try harder to bring awareness to these issues.
