Landed a Research Assistantship with Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings to develop Circular Economy Roadmaps! It's to help make plastic packaging more sustainable in this linear world we live in (take, make, use, dispose ). The strategy so far is to produce value chain maps, identify innovations, create a framework, and apply it! We have our first research team meeting today. Super stoked. 🙏 #research #circulareconomy #mitsubishi #asugradstudent #sustainability #masters

Oh how I missed California. 1st year of grad school done!! I like taking long hikes to self reflect and think of new goals I want for myself in the next year. Sometimes I stretch myself too thin and forget the reason why I left to grad school in the first place. Looking forward to getting some research done this summer! #findyourpark #selfcare #gradstudent #redwoods #ca #camping #hiking #boyswithplants

I ate my first microgreens harvest today! Here's a fun short video of how to make a bowl of microgreens for less than $1. I grew broccoli microgreens in 12 days (can harvest in 10 ) first on a paper towel, then in soil to help it grow better. Super easy to do! 🌱 Next, I'm building a 5 tier microgreen LED rack system that I'll make a follow up video for later! . . Fun fact: microgreens are more nutritious and have more antioxidants than their mature counterparts! #microgreens #urbanagriculture #broccolimicrogreens #sustainability #igvid #healthyfood #asusustainability #lumen5

I've been inspired by pages like @ihavethisthingwithurbanjungles to incorporate more plants into my life. 😄 Oh, and hedgehogs. Haha (lmk if you can spot my hedgehog in this pic ) 🦔 #boyswithplants #hedgehogsofinstagram #hedgehogsandplants #ubanjungleblogger #pothos #aquaponics #plantdaddy #men_and_plants #plantsmakepeoplehappy #ikeahack #crazyplantrichasian

I'm Andrew John, MS Sustainability student at Arizona State University. This is my first of many videos on plants, zero waste, hedgehogs, worm composting, and other sustainability tidbits. 😁 Here are the takeaways from the video: -Pothos are typically easy to take care of. They are indoor plants that like indirect sunlight. -I soak them once a week and let them drain completely. -I mist the leaves daily. I find that they grow better doing this. -Pothos can grow in soil or water. If in water, change it out once a week -They make wonderful household plants, especially if you're new to being a plant parent! (: Music: "Summer" From https://www.bensound.com

We did it fam! Super proud of my team for winning the 2018 PLuS Alliance ResourCE Hack for ASU. Over the next few days we'll be judged against the winner of the same event over at the University of New South Wales (UNSW ) to compete for the grand prize!🤞 . This was an event than spanned 2 days of teams working on a circular business solution to a sustainability problem. Our pitch tackled food waste at the pre-consumer level in India. I was amazed at the ideas others had: An app for food waste recovery from restaurants, Salvaging furniture and reselling it before it reaches for landfill, Sensor waste separation device for bins, etc. . I've learned the value of understanding business proposals from my fellow teammates, and the importance of a good pitch. Even if we don't win against UNSW, I see a lot of potential for our app idea in benefiting farmers in developing countries like India, the Philippines, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Reducing food waste, improving farmer well-being, and improving the local economy are the main areas our idea hopes to achieved. This was so fun (but a bit stressful ) to come up with an idea and present it given the time crunch. I'm super thankful for this opportunity to grow and learn about entrepreneurship. #sustainability #circulareconomy #resourcehack #risn #competition

Passed my Swimming 1 class. Onto Swimming 2! This class builds on the basics and teaches us different strokes: breast, butterfly, back, and freestyle. If I can avoid drowning in the pool, I can avoid drowning in grad school. 😂 #easy1unit #8weeks #myfavoriteclass #sunsoutgunsout #ASU
