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 Local Purchasing: Did you know we source food from many local farmers, growers and distributors? The list changes throughout the year depending on seasonality and availability.

Check Recycling: Dining Services partners with campus to recycle cans, bottles and compost from all dining locations across campus.  We are committed to minimizing our environmental footprint.  Look for signs in our locations for information on where to put your recyclables.

Check Reusables: Take part in our reusable mug program to reduce waste and receive a discount on fountain beverages and coffee in our Urban Market, Starbucks, Tim Horton's, Tim's Xpress and Cinnamon Café locations.

Check Recycled Content Paper: We use recycled content office and copy paper in dining locations on campus.

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