As a marketing major at Temple, I’ve struggled with how to bring “green” into my four short years at the Fox School. Although I know how to take the derivative of an equation, balance the debits and credits in my accounting homework, and create a fierce advertisement, something still felt like something was missing. Now I have found a way I can couple my degree with my passion for the environment with a certificate in sustainability. Find out about certificates and programs in sustainability, after the jump.
Call me a tainted woman, but I wasn’t too optimistic anticipating the State of the Union address. After reviewing my 2011 environmental summary of the State of the Union, I realized Obama made promises to put pressure back on big oil, get 80% of Americans access to high-speed rail within 25 years (remember that one?), 80% of electricity sourced by clean energy in 2035, and break foreign dependence on oil. Hmm…. Where are we today? (Luckily Treehugger had some Cliff Notes for me…)
In honor of my current travels, I'm sharing an excellent Treehugger Post I found on 7 green phone apps!
