Top 10 Greenest Colleges in America


Oberlin College

Recently we have been working with schools and universities on larger scale composting systems and big belly solar compacting garbage cans. As well we have been offering a range of composting curriculum and educational composters and working with educational consultants such as GreenFoxSchools. Suffice to say we are in the thick of the greening of schools movement. As a newly retired teacher, you can imagine how proud I am to be contributing to these efforts plus it keeps me in touch with my school network.

Anyway, I digress. The real reason for this post is to point out the article on the Daily Green on America’s top 10 Greenest Colleges.

America’s institutions of higher learning are some of the best incubators of sustainable solutions to myriad problems, and they are molding and inspiring the bright minds that will inherit the environment from the current generation of leaders.
