EcoReps’ Composter Blasts Off

Over four months since the project’s announcement, Columbia EcoReps revealed their beautiful new composter, which resides in the basement of Ruggles. Lovingly dubbed The Rocket, the composter is a first for urban universities and colleges in America. It will start out feeding on scraps from John Jay, then, just like a freshman, upgrade to adult food next September. By which we mean, it will start to rely on the scraps that other people feed it.  Welcome to college, little Rocket.

Thanks to Aida Conroy, CC ’13, for the tip!
