When food is disposed into a landfill, it becomes a source of methane – a greenhouse gas with 21 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide. Be a part of the solution by joining EnAct’s compost program! Every week, a volunteer will bike around to pick up compost from off- campus houses. Volunteers will be entered into a raffle for awesome prizes!
