Fashion & Sustainability

Florida State University art student and graphic designer for Sustainable Campus, Naira Diptee, recently created a zine on the topic of fashion and sustainability. Repurposing found fashion magazines into her work, she subverts the power of advertising in the fashion industry, calling the reader’s attention to the concepts of “fast-fashion” and the capitalistic ideology that supports it. Her use of these found objects also allows her work to have an aesthetic appeal to give those who may not normally choose to learn about sustainability a reason to pick up the zine.

winter break reminders

Whether you're traveling or staying local for the winter holiday, here are a few reminders to consider:

recycle

Recycling at FSU can be easy. You just gotta know these five things, and let other people know these five things too. When FSU recycles, our campus community and the environment benefit. When we recycle, we reduce the amount of waste we send to the landfill. We conserve natural resources, prevent pollution, save energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change, and help sustain the environment for future Noles!

Landis Hall

There’s no shortage of checklists, sponsored videos, and ads out there all about “college essentials.” Although some may make some good suggestions, at the end of the day, there are a lot of things on these lists that you just don't need. Our mission is to save your money, time, and the planet by dispelling some of the common myths about what you need to bring to FSU with you.
