College intern Hannah on integrating #green habits into her daily life as a #college freshman in the student blog, "Going Back Green": ...
"As a newly minted college freshman, I have spent the past month learning the ins and outs of a new campus, state, and way of life. Generally, colleges are leaders in sustainability, so integrating green habits into your daily life should be a breeze. Below are several environmental habits I’ve incorporated during my first few weeks of school.
... 1. Invest in reusable mugs, water bottles, and dishes.
Instead of having to throw out your greasy paper plate after a single use, bring a small stash of reusable items.
2. Keep a supply of your favorite foods.
Dining hall food isn’t known for being delicious. Instead of ordering from Little Caesar’s each night, purchase some staples, such as cereal, instant oatmeal, and granola bars.
3. Online shop sustainable brands.
Since arriving on campus, online shopping has become one of my favorite hobbies. Take time to investigate which brands are sustainable or have sustainable lines. Patagonia is a personal favorite!
4. Take advantage of rummage sales.
At the beginning of each school year there is a rummage sale on campus. Here students are able to buy gently used clothes, furniture, and other goods at a low price. Similarly, once a week there is a vintage sale with consignment goods. If your campus has these types functions, stop by!
5. Don’t bring your car to school.
You won’t need your car, especially as an underclassman. There’s no need to waste gas driving across the country just to have your vehicle sit in a lot. If you do need to get into town, use public transportation. Many schools offer free shuttles to nearby cities.
6. Unplug your appliances.
When you’re finished with your microwave, hot plate, or other dorm room appliance, power them down......"

So happy when this client approached me to rework a jacket for her using an old scarf she already owned and recycled tassels I had found✌🏻 Now she has a badass one-of-a-kind quality piece that is also a more sustainable option for our beautiful planet earth. Be consious of how your clothing is produced and where it ends up✌🏻♻️♻️♻️💚 #eehemmings

Happy Friday! During September and October we are working with Nigel, an architectural photographer, to document some of our finished projects to date. Our first photo day was earlier this week @burmieston. We are excited to share some of the photos over the coming weeks. We now have a whole new appreciation for photography and it's fascinating to see the process! While we were at Burmieston the weather changed from blue sky to stormy and we love the dramatic sky in this photo. 📷 by Nigel Rigden
