Articles in the Environment Category discuss student perspectives on various modern-day environmental issues, such as the recycling industry, greenhouse effects, and greenwashing. Many articles discuss potential solutions and local attitude changes the current youth generation could follow to provide roads and success stories to a greener, and ultimately, more sustainable planet. However, not all articles are environment heavy, as many showcase interdisciplinary interests with overlaps into politics, business, marketing, and local activism.
