Support for On-Campus Dining Sustainability Efforts at Colleges and Universities

Is your college or university looking to green its dining programs? Do you have goals to eliminate single-use plastics, reduce food waste, and inspire more earth-friendly actions on campus? Help diners embrace sustainability with practical branding tools they can bring to campus dining halls, coffee shops, and eateries on the go.  

With reusable utensil sets, students and staff can ditch disposable forks, knives, and spoons at take-out counters and cafes. Eco-friendly utensils are stored in portable, sustainable branded pouches to help users carry a responsible message wherever they go. Customizable utensil sets with reusable straws and cleaners also offer a solution for reducing plastic straw waste.  

It is against health codes for students to bring their own food storage containers to campus dining halls. However, reusable bento boxes are purposeful products for students, staff, and faculty who enjoy packing their own meals in an effort to reduce food waste. Sustainable lunch containers are popular giveaways for resident life, student affairs and sustainability departments.  

Colleges and universities offering discounts for cafe beverage purchases give away reusable drinkware to boost engagement and support their green programs. Students, staff and faculty members will be encouraged to make the switch from paper cups, eliminating waste from disposable cups, sleeves, and lids, especially if a discount is included. Add convenient and eco-responsible alternatives to single-use cups and create more conscious on-campus eating and drinking habits.
