Alumni Spotlight: Stephen Szucs, '05
From June 2013 to June 2014, Stephen Szucs, '05, generated only one bag of garbage. After graduating from UCF with a bachelor's degree in finance, Szucs taught English in Barcelona, led adventure tours across North America, traveled, owned a solar company and bartended. But, then he discovered his real passion. Dedicating himself to living a sustainable life and teaching others to reduce, reuse, recycle and #RETHINK everything, he founded Sustainable Joes in January 2013.
"Sustainability is about more than trees and whales," he says. "It's about survival. I want Joes to teach others how to take sustainable action — how to link passion, purpose and profit...good for the Earth, others and yourself. Sustainability is possible, but we must see our diversity as a point of unification instead of division."READ MORE
