NYU Department of Environmental Studies Opens at CAS

On September 1, the Department of Environmental Studies officially opened at the NYU College of Arts and Science.

Lauren Singer (CAS ’13)

When Lauren Singer (CAS ’13) took a hard look at the waste she was producing, she felt like a hypocrite. The sustainability advocate decided to make a change to a waste-free lifestyle. After two years living trash free and documenting her journey in her blog, Trash is for Tossers, she has founded The Simply Co., which offers sustainable, chemical-free household supplies.
