Making college campus green: Portland State University

At PSU, student-led green innovations are cause for annual celebration. Every year, the Solutions Generator, a student and faculty committee, chooses a handful of environmental proposals submitted by their peers and colleagues, as well as local community members. This year, 13 proposals were selected. They include:
   An organic waste recycling system enabled by Black Fly larvae
   A greywater collection system using mushrooms that filter waste and plants that enable water to easily evaporate
   A community fruit orchard, allowing students to grow several different species and study tree fungal growth
   An artistic exhibition space that exclusively utilizes recycled and/or reused materials
