As I’m writing this, my favorite reusable water bottle is next to my laptop. It’s a typical green Nalgene, but this one is special to me; this one is covered, and I mean covered, in stickers. This bottle symbolizes so much in my life: my love of the color green, my obsession with reusable bottles, my love for SUNY-ESF, my desire to make everything I own unique to me, but most importantly, it's one of the ways I express how much the environment means to me. It’s a conversation starter. When someone asks me what my stickers are from, I view it as an opportunity for me to talk about the environment. Whether it’s educating, debating, or chatting, it’s become my own unique take on environmental communication. I truly believe that the best way I can help the environment is to talk. Through writing, speeches, and photography, I believe people have to be part of the story of nature to best understand it.
