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:

For a latte or non-drip drink PSU Dining offers a 15 cent discount, but drip coffee, iced tea, and fountain beverages are priced at 95 cents when you bring your own mug (no matter the size of the cup) as opposed to $1.65 (small) $1.95 (medium) or $2.25 (large). Thus, the maximum discount is $1.30 for using a reusable mug.

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):

Reusable to-go containers are offered in Victors dining hall and Viking Food Court.
