"Are Concordia's Composting Practices Effective?"

In conjunction Waste Not Want Not, I have gathered data to determine the effectiveness of waste diversion since 2014 ( the year of WNWN’s inception), which will be used in months and years to come to further inform and tailor WNWN education efforts to the needs of the present-day Concordia population.

If an increase in composting effectiveness can be observed between now and 2014, and if this increase stands in sharp contrast to the effectiveness of such practices prior to 2014, then some support would exist for the claim that WNWN’s collaborative ‘Living Lab’ model of lobbying for more sustainable on-campus waste practices is worth exporting to other educational institutions.
