A brief description of the single-use disposable plastics that have been banned or eliminated:
*Plastic straws have been discontinued and paper straws are only available upon request. *Plastic shopping bags are not used on campus, just paper bags. *Reusable to-go containers are used for to-go meals in Hurley Hall. *No Styrofoam is used anywhere in dining. *Individually packaged utensils are only used for to-go meals and in some catering. We do our best to source biodegradable for this. As a standard we use biodegradable plates, utensils, and cups for all catered events. Unless there is a specific client request, in which there is a fee.
