Every day we discard a million tons of waste. But after we tossed it in the trash, it doesn’t disappear. It ends up on waste disposal sites or, even worse, in oceans and the nature. Our environment suffers under our consumption-oriented lifestyle.
This wastage is one of the reasons why Syracuse University student Laura Markley started her organization “waste-free Ph.D.”. With her instagram presence and website she wants to raise awareness and share her own experience of reducing waste in her daily life. This should lead to a healthy understanding of waste-free living.
Laura Markley studies at the Civil and Environmental Engineering department at Syracuse University. She did her bachelor’s and master’s Degrees in Environmental Earth Science. So she is an expert when it comes to environmental topics.
