Erin Schrode is a young ecoRenaissance woman. As the “face of the new green generation,” the co-founder of Teens Turning Green promotes global sustainability, youth leadership, environmental education, and conscious lifestyle choices. Since 2005, her youth-led non-profit has worked to raise public awareness about environmental and social responsibility for individuals, schools, and communities through education and advocacy – inspiring the transition from conventional to conscious living. After working in disaster response in Haiti, she founded and launched The Schoolbag, a youth education project to provide tools for students in need, as well as initiate active citizenry and environmental stewardship. The program has reached over 30,000 students in Haiti, in addition to deliveries in East Timor and South Africa.
A “sustainability prodigy” and eco expert, Erin has been featured in the NY Times, Vanity Fair, SF Chronicle, NY Post, Seventeen Magazine, Teen Vogue, National Geographic, ABC, NBC, BBC, CNN, FOX, MTV, PBS, E!, AOL, GOOD, Slate, and other multimedia outlets. The “juggernaut in the non profit and green world” speaks frequently, serves on panels, hosts events, conferences and videos, and writes columns for The Huffington Post and other sites, as well as her ecoRenaissance blog and twitter. An award-winning ecopreneur, Erin is US Ambassador to One Young World, spokeswoman for top organic and recycled brands, and as The White House said, “a dynamic, passionate and ambitious young woman committed to creating big change everywhere she goes.” She is a fourth year DEANS Scholar at NYU – after terms abroad in the Middle East, West Africa, South America, and Europe. Having visited over sixty countries, Erin has developed a keen global perspective and hopes to inspire her peers to take action and make the world a more sustainable and just place for future generations.
