About me page

My name is Emily Lax, I am currently a junior at Muhlenberg College. As a public health major and sustainability studies minor, I have found the food industry to be a reoccurring theme in my education. Specifically in the United States, there are various problems with its functionality. On both an individual level and a large scale, there are many ways we can work to improve the conditions. Current trends from agriculture practices, social values, and political willpower cause the industry to disregard the potential for a sustainable future. Corporations are greatly responsible for the destruction of the ethical values in the system. I have decided to focus on solutions to shift sustainable practices away from monopolies and towards a healthier future.
