Has the institution banned or eliminated the on-site sales and distribution of at least one type of single-use disposable plastic?:

A brief description of the single-use disposable plastics that have been banned or eliminated:

Plastic bottled beverages (of all types) have been entirely banned and removed from campus in addition to plastic straws, plastic bags and plastic utensils.

Single-Use Plastic Elimination Policy
The Lewis & Clark Sustainability Council formally endorses efforts by the Lewis & Clark community to remove beverages in plastic bottles from campus vending and catering while promoting policies and practices to eliminate plastic bottles sales entirely. This effort aims to eliminate waste created by single-use items, to reduce our reliance on products containing fossil fuels, and support higher value recyclable or reusable items across our campuses.
