Tali Haller, Mu, has been a student at the University of Washington for less than two years, and she's already won two Husky Green Awards – an accomplishment no one else has achieved.

"It's very motivating, and it also gives some validity to the things that I'm doing," she said about the Husky Green Award wins. "It's really nice to be recognized for work that I’m doing on campus."

Tali has already been able to make a big impact promoting sustainability in the UW Greek system, as well as being involved in many other environmental and sustainability projects on campus and off.

As a freshman, Tali earned a Husky Green Award largely for her efforts in creating a sustainability chair at her Sigma Kappa sorority, and implementing sustainability measures. These efforts were used as a pilot program with an eye toward implementing the program in Sigma Kappa chapters nationwide.

This year, she's worked to increase sustainability awareness across all Greek houses at UW through the EcoReps' Green Greek Representative program. She volunteered to help start the program and has help get every fraternity and sorority on campus to name a Green Greek representative.
