Sustainability Action Committee
In late 2014, undergraduate student members of the Broad College Sustainability Action Committee (SAC) installed two water filtration stations in the Broad College of Business at Michigan State University. The filtration stations allow students and faculty members to avoid the use of fossil fuels to make and transport plastic bottles. The stations were funded, in part, by a Lewis Quality of Excellence Award from the Broad College of Business. The award was in recognition of the SAC's earlier achievements.

This is Jessica YaJaira Blandón Díaz on the San Juan de Limay River near Nicaragua's northern border. Her father is a carver of marmolina (soapstone -a stone related to marble) and a member of a Fair Trade cooperative. Fair Trade gives Jessica's family income to pay for her books and uniforms, enabling her to continue her studies in the local public school.
