Composting tally: 10,700 lbs. in four months

Ransom Everglades composted 10,700 lbs. of food scraps in the first four months of the 2022-23 school year. Sage Dining Services staff members have administered the program, depositing fruit and vegetable waste into new pink collection bins on both campuses. Led by Director of Environmental Sustainability Kelly Jackson, the composting is part of RE's growing commitment to operating green campuses. Food that is composted does not end up in landfills, helping to reduce harmful methane emissions.
Founded in 1903, Ransom Everglades School is a coeducational, college preparatory day school for grades 6 - 12 located on two campuses in Coconut Grove, Florida. Ransom Everglades School produces graduates who "believe that they are in the world not so much for what they can get out of it as for what they can put into it." The school provides rigorous college preparation that promotes the student's sense of identity, community, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying life, and prepares the student to lead and to contribute to society.
