Dining Services recently reached its goal of eliminating all non-compostable items from the dining commons. This was done by switching from non-biodegradeable products like individual condiment packets, tea bags with paper tags attached by metal staple, and plastic straws to more sustainable options like reusable bulk condiment stations, 100% silk tea bags, and bio-degradeable paper straws. What this means is that now 100% of food waste in the dining commons is being pulped and sent to the Bioconversion center where it is composted and reused on campus.
