Composting in TC’s Courtyard
 
In an ongoing effort to reduce waste, Teachers College has installed two Earthmaker compost bins in the Russell courtyard. Community members are encouraged to use the bins, and plans are underway to expand their use to Dining Services.
 
Composting is a natural process of turning everyday organic waste into nutrient-rich soil. According to the NYC Compost Project, New Yorkers discard more than one million tons of organic waste every year. Compostable materials include fruits and vegetables, eggshells, tea bags, paper towels and even pizza boxes. To learn more about composting, including a full list of compost-friendly materials, please visit: www.nyccompost.org.
 
The compost bins were made possible by a Filter For Good Eco-Challenge grant www.filterforgood.com/ecochallenge/. To learn more about the TC composting project, including educational programs at the College related to food, ecology, and sustainability, please contact Colin Schumacher at cjs2149@columbia.edu.
