Reducing Waste For The Win

Forget Monday’s boring national championship game. The real college champion crowned this week is Marist College. Yup–Marist!

The pride of Poughkeepsie (N.Y.) won the EPA WasteWise Game Day Challenge in the Per Capita Organics Reduction category. If you select ‘Organics Reduction’ in the pulldown menu, you will see that tiny Marist destroyed the competition, outpacing both the green giants at the¬†University of Colorado at Boulder and those Harvard overachievers.

And it seems Marist may have a bit of a dynasty brewing. They won the inaugural organics challenge in 2010. Go Red Foxes!

Check here to see if your school participated.

    I found this really interesting, I am just starting a project for a class at my university where I wanted to look into the food waste created by the dining centers at my school. My school is also not very large and this just shows that even small schools should try to make a difference in what food they buy to serve to their students as well as how much food they end up throwing away at the end of the day and what they can do to reduce those numbers. Really enjoy your blog!
