Sustainable EcoClamshell Program
January 18, 2012Billiken Dining Presents Eco-Containers!
Reusable containers offer convenience for students as well as sustainability for the environment. Since many students often have busy schedules, it is ideal for them to have the option to grab a meal to go from the dining hall. However, traditional disposable containers create a huge problem of excess waste on campus.
Because meeting the students’ needs should be a top priority, the best environmental solution to this problem is the use of reusable containers.
Students receive an eco-friendly reusable contain when they want a meal to go. They can then drop off the container when finished to be cleaned and pick up a new one, or they can return the containers and get a new one the next time they want a meal to go. By switching to the reusable container program, it is possible to reduce the environmental impact!
