DUMPSTER 101: Take the dive in this spring.

Dumpster 101 is a sustainability and environmental science course focused on a theme of ‘less is more’. The course will focus on the ideas and concepts of sustainability around the idea of a person living in a dumpster. What are the implications of living in 33 sq ft? How will Professor Dumpster obtain water? How will he use the toilet? How will he shower? Would it be possible for him to live off of things grown in the East Austin community? What does environmentalism mean in a low-income community? The course will engage students in a service learning project that involves the dumpster and the local community.

Major PROPS to our Green is the New Black student group at Huston-Tillotson University for bringing home the green at the Ford Foundation HBCU Community Challenge. They were competing against graduate students from the “HBCU Ivy League” and won first place, $75,000 and 5 iPad airs. So very proud of these guys. Thank you to all our supporters of the dumpster project that got us here: Barbara Brown Wilson Vanessa Svihla Liz Ogbu Rich Corsi and Les Shephard. #winning #uinfirstplace #hustontillotson #hbcu #be_ht #atx #sustainability #community
