Name of the campaign:
Trinity College Composts

A brief description of the campaign, including how students and/or employees were engaged:

During the fall semester of 2018 Trinity college partnered with Blue Earth Compost, a local composting company. The partnership allowed the college's sustainability coordinator to create an educational campaign about how to compost in our dining facilities. Our intention through the educational campaign was and has been to reach students, faculty, and staff as they all use our dining facility. We had students volunteer as peer to peer educators at the composting stations, campus wide emails were sent out, an educational composting video was made, and posters explaining the composting process were placed on every table in the dining hall.


A brief description of the measured positive impact(s) of the campaign:

The compost program has significantly reduced the amount of waste that is sent to the incinerator in our city. we currently compost 6,0000lbs-10,000lbs of waste every month. This accounts for 5%-10% of our overall campus waste including recycling.
