Overview of Outdoor Idea


Composting is one of the most sustainable and easiest ways to divert waste that would otherwise go to landfills. By revamping our campus composting project beyond its current pilot stage, the University of San Diego can help move towards its goal of becoming the most sustainable university by 2020.

The Specifics: What will the $5,000 fund?

Funds will be used to purchase individual compost bins to be used in residence halls and offices, plants for our organic community garden, worms that will break down organic material and marketing materials to spread the word about the project to current and incoming students. The $5,000 will allow our small composting project to grow to something into a scalable project that other urban colleges and universities can implement. With GOOD’s help, we can help plant the seeds of a compost revolution in San Diego!
