In the latest move toward sustainability at Seattle University, the administration has announced that the entire campus will become 100% compostable. Starting in the 2015-16 academic year, all buildings, furniture, textbooks, and equipment will be remade and replaced using biodegradable materials.

“This is a huge step in our commitment toward an eco-friendly university,” one Seattle University official commented. “We hope to erase our footprint on the Earth but leave a lasting footprint on the way universities go about sustainability. We believe that we’re really raising the bar.”

Scientists estimate that Seattle University will be completely degraded by 2018, leaving absolutely no trace of its existence. However, reports indicate that the university plans to retain all investments in the fossil fuel industry beyond the degradation of the physical campus.
