ABSTRACT
The article reports on the launch of a program in which everything from food to tableware was designed to be recycled as compost by the Portland State University in Oregon. Dubbed as A Midnight Breakfast, the program aims to educate students about recycling and composting. The university uses recycled plates, cups, and napkins and starch-based compostable flatware. Food that could be served again was given to the Food Share feeding program and the rest of the leftovers were composted.
