Jared Marsh

Sustainability Reps Program Student Leader - Expanded Composting Pilot Program




Jared is a Student Leader for the Sustainability Reps Program, which seeks to engage and educate fellow students, faculty and staff on sustainability and sustainable practices on campus. He is currently working on a composting pilot program running in Marycrest residence hall with ambitious dreams to ultimately implement composting in all residence halls. Jared’s has engaged a team of fellow students who are working on the project to ensure more of the waste from participating floors is diverted from the landfill and is composted and reused for other purposes. Their goal is to turn composting into something that becomes second nature for faculty, staff and students on campus.

Student Perspective

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”
    - Marie Curie

I think this is a powerful quote because it is important to really understand why we do what we do. A person must ask themselves why should I live more sustainable? The answer must come from within, and believe me, there are plenty of good reasons to live more sustainable if one just takes the time to look. Now is not the time to make excuses.
