Volunteer-led efforts of GW students to create a composting program help to reduce food waste on campus.
GWU students demand sustainable food waste disposal
Colleges contribute an estimated 22 million pounds of food waste, so GW students are demanding a better system. Teams of student volunteers began collecting and sorting compost on Feb. 2nd, 2018, and this program is just the beginning. If it’s successful, the school plans to implement composting all around campus!
