Eco-Reps are peer educators dedicated to furthering sustainability by promoting ways for students to adopt more environmentally and socially responsible behaviors. Eco-Reps educate their peers about environmental and sustainability issues through three primary outlets: coordinating with Residence Life staff to incorporate sustainability themes or practices into residential programs; delivering Sustainable Living lessons to Elon 101 and Global Studies courses as requested; and contributing to and promoting Office of Sustainability events such as Campus Sustainability Week and Earth Week.

Meet the Current Eco-Reps


Colonnades Neighborhood

Virginia Campbell (she/her)

Graduation Year: 2026

Hometown: Alexandria, VA

Major: Integrative Biology; Minors: Spanish and Environmental Studies

Favorite Sustainable living tip:  To lower your carbon footprint, bike more instead of driving and try to eat fewer animal products. Try to opt for used clothes over fast fashion- go thrifting or buy from consignment stores! Avoid using disposable dryer sheets or commercial fabric softener. Instead, you can make your own dryer sheets easily with vinegar and essential oils!


East Neighborhood

Liwei Chen (she/her)

Graduation Year: 2025

Hometown: Hubei, China

Favorite Sustainable Living Tip: Reduce, reuse, recycle!


Station at Mill Point

Mandi Jaffe (she/her)

Graduation Year: 2024

Hometown: Parkland, Florida

Majors: Outdoor Leadership & Education and Communication Design; Minor: Environmental Education

Favorite Sustainable Living Tip: One small thing can make a big difference, so when thinking about sustainability think of one small change you personally can make to better our planet because that will make a bigger impact than you think! When shopping use reusable shopping bags and use a reusable water bottle as there are so many water fountains around campus!

Historic Neighborhood

Annabel Langley (she/her)

Graduation Year: 2025

Hometown: Southampton, UK & Corpus Christi, Texas

Sustainable Living Tip: Buy clothes from thrift shops as much as possible! When buying clothes in general, look for items made of natural materials like linen, cotton and wool. These materials take much less time to decompose compared to synthetic materials!

Favorite Sustainable Living Tip: Small change is still significant change! Reduce your meat consumption by cutting it out of at least one meal per day or by being meat-free one day per week. Reduce your plastic usage by bringing a mug to coffee shops or making coffee at home instead. Always have a metal straw in your bag or on a keychain. Reuse (go thrifting), recycle, and reduce your energy use! Sustainability is not about perfection but about effort.


Oaks Neighborhood

Molly Ruiz (she/her)

Loy Center Neighborhood

Favorite Sustainability Living Tip: One easy sustainable living tip is to switch to using reusable bags when shopping.

Plus, you can thrift canvas bags and decorate them with pins and patches to make it your own!
