Student Alden Robert ’23 envisions a greener University of Puget Sound campus

For Alden Robert ’23, creating an environmentally sustainable campus involves a lot more than recycling, but it’s a place to start. The religious studies and international political economy major is the student manager for Sustainability Services and oversees the students who collect, sort, and transport all of Puget Sound’s recycling output. It’s an uphill battle, even for a campus with a commitment to environmental justice, and it’s been eye-opening for Robert to examine his own habits through the lens of sustainability.
