Enjoy this beautiful photo of our home. Let’s keep it beautiful.
Thanks for supporting the poop campaign. Just because the free coffee is over doesn’t mean the Living Machine is shut down. You can come to the AJLC anytime and participate in a greener way to treat waste.
Happy Earth Day everyone!

The Living Machine: Too small a solution for such a large problem?
The Living Machine does great work at Oberlin, but does it do enough? Can biological waste treatment really alleviate the need for large, energy-wasting, conventional treatment plants? This NY Times article gives hope that it can! Read about the awesome constructed wetlands waste treatment popping (or should we say pOOping) up in small towns in America: http://tinyurl.com/cdkrlfe
Even Ecolympics keynote speaker, Erik Assadourian promotes the Poop Campaign! He mentioned it in his speech about Degrowth this past Wednesday. Come to the AJLC to see what all the fuss is about!
You may have seen these awesome posters around campus, designed by our very own Sarah Lejeune! It’s not human waste, it’s human RESOURCE! Come to the AJLC and give a $hit for the Environment!
The Scoop on Poop
Hi! And welcome to the official blog of Oberlin College’s POOP CAMPAIGN! The campaign is part of the annual Ecolympics events on campus. The campaign has two goals:
1) Getting people to come check out the Living Machine in the AJLC and find out what it does! (And maybe donating some of their own valuable brown to the LM)
2) Increasing awareness about waste management, including what human waste is, how it’s disposed of and why we should all be more aware of it!
So, check back here for regular updates on events, interesting facts, articles and videos and follow the Living Machine on twitter and facebook as well! And tell your friends!
