Casey is currently a junior. She came to USU with a passion for the environment, and was thrilled when she moved to Logan to discover such a hard-working community focusing on sustainability issues and connecting people to nature. She loves to try new things, and has been involved in a variety of activities since starting college, including undergraduate research projects, working as a Resident Assistant, studying abroad, and participating in Alternative Breaks with the Service Center. She loves working with people and is happy to provide any support she can to students with an intreset of getting more involved in sustainability.  

Sustainable Waste Intern: Zoey Marty

My name is Zoey Marty, and recycling is my passion. I also love picking up litter,
standing barefoot on summer grass, and eating raspberries. I am a sophomore in the
Environmental Studies major, minoring in Women and Gender Studies. My ultimate
occupational goal is to empower women everywhere in using sustainable agriculture to feed
their families.  I manage the True Blue Reuse store, USU’s very own thrift store. My goal is to prevent quality
textiles from entering landfills, by simply reusing them. If you are interested in volunteering,
have questions about Cache Valley’s recycling program, or simply want to indulge your interest
in raspberry eating, please don’t hesitate to send me an email at
