Pumpkin Smash

Every Halloween, over one billion pounds of pumpkins are tossed in landfills throughout the US where they are left to rot amongst other materials releasing methane. Edgewater Environmental Coalition, in partnership with SCARCE, had a pumpkin composting initiative, Pumpkin Smash.


We were awarded the Big Blue Stem Award for Environmental Impact by the Chicago Conservation Corps and Chicago Academy of Sciences for our efforts.
