Margaret Chen

At Haverford College, Margaret’s passion for sustainability led her to change Haverford’s student-run policy to uphold ESG investment and dorm waste standards and lead Haverford’s main environmental committee composed of students, faculty, and staff. Along with graduating with a B.A. in Environmental Studies, Margaret co-founded Bentbox, a reusable container return service aimed to reduce plastic consumption in communities near landfills, which won 3rd place in the 2020 B.PHL College Innovation PitchFest. She plans to become more involved in public affairs careers focused on alleviating environmental and social burdens on marginalized communities. Margaret enjoys cooking and learning about plants.
