A Smashing Success

On November 6th, 2021, ECO (Environmental Concerns Organization) members and AP Environmental Science students held a wildly successful “Pumpkin Smash” at Hinsdale South High School. Hundreds of pumpkins were brought, smashed, and composted as part of a larger effort to encourage disposing of pumpkins in an ecofriendly way, rather than trashing them. Below is a collection of highlights from this event.
