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:

Trayless Dining

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.am.

Fryer Oil Recycling

One hundred percent of dining services used fryer oil is recycled by Filta Fry.

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.

Recycled Content Paper

We use 100% recycled content office and copy paper in D-Hall & The Bistro  dining locations on campus.

Green Cleaning

All dining locations are committed to using daily green cleaning products in our operations to reduce the need for chemical based cleaning products and provide a healthy and safe learning environment.

Energy & Water Conservation

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