Welcome to Stories of Sustainability. This month we are focusing on The Race to Zero Waste with our second #EcoChampion: Emily Rodia, co-founder of Good Buy Supply!
This story of sustainability offers Temple community members insight into Philadelphia’s first low-waste home goods storefront! Good Buy Supply provides everything from zero waste products to community education initiatives on sustainability. The East Passyunk small business successfully opened during the pandemic and serves as a drop-off point for Bottle Underground and working towards carbon neutral shipping by 2021.
Join owners Emily and Jason, and the Office of Sustainability for a conversation on a sustainable small-business -- pursuing a plastic free lifestyle, essential low-waste products, and the journey of reducing Philadelphia’s carbon footprint.

In this three part series, Temple Sustainability highlights zero waste strategies from EcoChampions on and off campus. We look to campus operations experts to dive deep into the challenges of waste management, to student leaders shaping zero waste culture in their organizations, and business innovators reimaging zero waste commerce. Join us for skill building opportunities with Leave No Trace and Green Grant winner, Adventure Bound, learn about the emergent zero waste shopping community and hot button issues of electronic waste here in Philly, and be a part of challenging and critical discussions about institutional impact and equity in upcycling.
