Zoey Marty

Zoey Marty

Sustainable Waste Intern
Student Sustainability Office
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 zoeykaymarty@gmail.com
