|0.25 / 0.25||
Food Services Director
Does campus dining operations offer discounts to customers who use reusable mugs instead of disposable cups in to-go food service operations?:
A brief description of the reusable mug program:
Coffee shops on campus, which includes Tim Hortons (run by Chartwells) and Olive Olye's (run by the School of Tourism and Hospitality), offer a 10 cent discount to customers that use a reusable coffee mug. The Oasis (run by the Fanshawe Student Union) sells their own reusable coffee mug, which holds a large coffee; when this mug is used in the Oasis, it is filled like a large coffee but the customer is only charged for a regular cup of coffee.
Amount of the discount offered for using reusable mugs:
Description of other reusable food- or beverage-related programs (e.g. incentives for use of reusable bags, dishware, to-go containers):
At Olive Olye's, customers bringing in their own reusable containers for take out food are also given a 10% discount.
At Oasis, students do not have to pay extra for using china plates, whereas the plastic reusable to-go containers cost and extra $0.25
