More From Brianne

A cause I'm into right now...

Increasing diversity in the sustainability community is important to me because climate change has a direct and devastating impact mostly to marginalized communities and BIPOC groups. While these groups often suffer the brunt of hardships from our global climate crisis, they also have the most barriers inhibiting access to sustainable alternatives for food, products, education and so forth. While I work to be more sustainable myself, I acknowledge the privilege that enables me to do so, and I work to support organizations that specifically address increasing diversity in eco-activism.
