Emily Gardner and Daniel Runbeck of the Be Blue, Go Green Team were kind enough to show us some of USD's awesome sustainability efforts by destroying a laptop in the E-Waste Center, tanning by the solar panel installation on top of the KIPJ, and even making a PSA about the compost bins behind Mission's Crossroads.
Update: On March 29, 2012, USD was named "Outstanding Sustainable Organization of the Year" last week by the California Center for Sustainable Energy (CCSE) at its eighth annual Energy All-Star Awards. Read more here.
