State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry
Tier2-9: Reusable Mug Discounts

Status Score Responsible Party
n/a 0.00 /

This credit was marked as Not Applicable for the following reason:

Institution does not have to-go food service operations.

SUNY ESF outsources its one campus dining facility to Syracuse University.

At the start of the fall semester students on a meal plan receive a free reusable water bottle. If used, the student receives a 20 percent discount at all Syracuse University dining locations on campus. This gives them the option of refilling it with tap water to reduce bottled water use and taking a beverage “to go.” The reusable bottles reduced prepackaged beverages in the dining centers, further reducing trash volume.
