The LBJ Green Society has helped in reducing the amount of waste produced from weekly lunch talks and meetings hosted at the LBJ School. By reducing landfill waste and compostingwe are providing more nutrients for soil and plants as opposed to throwing our waste into landfills that do us no good. All LBJ dining service have switched to compostable materials for plates, bowls, cups and silverware. By partnering with Organics by Gosh, the LBJ Green Society has three compost bins. By March 2012, LBJ had composted over 10,500 lbs of food and compostable waste.

Furthermore, by introducing sustainable habits to those who may not already think about composting, we are sowing the seeds of environmentally conscious living.
