Why Sustainability Is Important

The term “sustainability” is more than just trendy word usage. There is a real purpose in applying principles and practices that have long-term positive effects on the local community and planet we inhabit. Sustainable practices are just that, they can be continued indefinitely. The goal is to minimize our negative impact on the ecosystems of this world while continuing to enjoy the brands we love by taking items that are routinely discarded and turning them into new products.

About The Student Advocate

Hello, my name is Ryan Ricardson and I currently serve as a student ambassador for ERM Sustainability Solutions at Georgia Stae University. I am currently a first-year undergraduate student at the honors college studying Film and Media.

In the short time, I have been working for ERM Sustainability I have experienced first-hand the tremendous impact going green can have not only on a community but on a University as a whole.

My goal is to promote a new movement towards sustainability by implementing various programs and ideas that will continue to serve my University long after I am gone.

Shirts made from 6 plastic bottles not only provide an easy way to go green but also allow us to brand our apparel without sacrificing quality.

Panthers, get ready to save the planet one bottle at a time.
