The current climate crisis may make us feel overwhelmed and find it difficult to find optimism. If you find yourself wrestling with these emotions and negative thoughts about the environment, know you are not alone. In fact, anxiety induced by thoughts of environmental defeat has its own term: eco-anxiety. Eco-anxiety has been defined as “chronic discomfort brought on by an overwhelming fear of environmental disaster,” and is a prevalent issue for many people, not just those who work in  the environmental field.

Please share a bit about yourself, what you do for work or study, and when you became interested in sustainability.

My name’s Zoë, she/her/hers, I’m currently an FSU graduate student in East Asian Languages and Cultures focusing on Chinese language and literature. I am a teaching assistant teaching Chinese 2. I’ve always been interested in sustainability, but I think when it really became a committed practice was in my junior year of high school around the time of taking AP Earth, Space, and Science.

I overestimate the amount of ingredients in most meals, so freezing leftovers like macaroni and cheese, eggplant parmesan, soups, and honestly anything I can’t finish, into a glass tupperware is how I stretch a meal and a buck.

This week, Sustainable Campus and Thrift Club of FSU partnered up to celebrate fashion week with a sustainable twist. To wrap up this week, some members of Sustainable Campus staff, as well as some of our friends in Thrift Club, sat down with sustainability leaders on campus to chat about sustainable fashion.

Tayah: Buses (Seminole Express/StarMetro)

My favorite way to get around Tallahassee is to use the bus! The Seminole Express/StarMetro bus system is very user friendly and easy to get around to all of your favorite spots in Tallahassee. By using the Rider app, you can see the bus times in real time and see all the stops on each route. I love that you can go so many different places including the mall, local parks, and tons of stores.
