Provide a brief description.:
UC San Diego provides discounted rates for reusable mugs or bottles for cold beverages: $0.05 discount for mugs $0 .99 for reusable bottle as compared to $1.59 for a glass of soda.

UC San Diego has switched its to-go ware to be recyclable instead of compostable due to the fact that there are recycling bins all over campus, but not composting bins. Students can now recycle their to-go ware anywhere on campus.
