Andy Hernandez, a conscientious consumer for Facilities
Monday, Nov. 4, 2013
Andy Hernandez, born and raised in San Jose, California, has been Santa Clara University’s Stockroom Leader in the Facilities Department for the past thirteen years. He is also one of the newest members to the Center for Sustainability’s Workplace Sustainability Liaison program. Andy has incorporated features of sustainability, such as ethical and responsible consumerism, into his work. The Center for Sustainability asked him a few questions about himself and his role as a conscious consumer.
