Changemaker Fellow Promoting Zero Waste
One step at a time.
That’s Ellie Phillips’ mindset. Whether it’s educating one person to make a positive change in their sustainability habits, or focusing on the next lap in the pool instead of the long swim meet ahead, Phillips likes to keep it small.
So when it comes to her work as a USD Summer Changemaker Fellow and as an intern in the university’s Office of Sustainability, she focuses on educating the individual. “Even if you just talk to one person, tell one person, enlighten and educate them about one thing, that helps. Then they can tell another person, and they can tell another.”
