Meet the Eco-Reps!
Hello everyone, my name is Jasmine and I’m a senior Environmental Studies major/Art minor! I am also an officer for UNE Earth’s ECO. I am very passionate about the environment and keeping it healthy for generations to come! I decided to become an Eco Rep so I could get more involved with on campus environmental initiatives and make positive change. My favorite projects include the Clean Seas kiosk and projects that contribute to our edible campus initiative!
I am an Animal Behavior Major graduating in 2024. My favorite thing about being an Eco-Rep is the feeling of taking action and helping out with sustainability projects that will make a beneficial environmental impact within the UNE community.
My favorite campus sustainability initiative is the composting program. I appreciate how convenient it is to compost on campus and know that my food scraps won’t end up in a landfill. My favorite thing to do outside is going for hikes and going on bike rides. As an Eco-Rep one of my proudest accomplishment has been making the club tennis team a little bit greener. During one of my tennis practices I realized the tennis balls were getting hit over the fence into the woods once the balls were no good. To solve this problem I was able to help install a place to recycle tennis balls that would eventually be used to build tennis courts, or recycled in another way through the program Recyleballs.org.
Hello, my name is Ariana Walker and I am a first-year environmental science student. I am from western Massachusetts but spent most of my childhood years in southern Vermont. I am very passionate about the environment and have always enjoyed the many activities offered by it. My goal as an Eco-Rep is to gain knowledge and insight, in order to apply these skills in a career to ensure that people in the future enjoy the same luxuries we do.
