What We're Doing

We work together to continually develop and implement sustainable solutions. Through Green Thread, our environmental sustainability platform, we bring innovative and efficient solutions to life. We are passionately focused on reducing the environmental impact within our operations. Here are just a few ways we work to make our campus more environmentally conscious:

Check Reusable To-Go Container: Getting your meal to go from the Café?  We will be implementing a reusable to-go container program in the Café coming soon! We will continue to update you in our progress.

Check Trayless Dining: Did you know Dining Services has been trayless since 2008? By dining trayless, you have helped positively impact the waste stream.  Dining trayless minimizes food waste, conserves energy and water, and reduces the amount of cleaning chemicals entering the waste stream.

Check Fryer Oil Recycling:  One hundred percent of dining services used fryer oil is recycled by a local company to be used for bio grade diesel.

Check Hydration Stations: Dining Services offers several hydration stations throughout campus.  Use the filtered water stations to refresh and refuel while helping to impact your carbon footprint.

Check Energy and Water Conservation: We train our employees each semester on common energy and water conservation practices in order to conserve precious natural resources.
