Sustainable Thanksgiving

For one of the first times at a large event hosted by Hunter College, students and faculty were given the option to have their food waste converted into useful composting thanks to the help of our dedicated HSP members.  Through out the night we assisted in properly sorting the waste created at USG’s yearly Thanksgiving Dinner, that feeds nearly 1000 people!  In total we collected 10 bags of composting material.  A big thanks to Earth Matter composting center on Governor’s Island whom accepted all of our composting, and GrowNYC for giving us tips on how to manage a project of this size.  Go HSP!
