The Reusable Mugs are Coming- to a dining hall near you

This fall Bon Appétit, Students Organized for the Protection of the Environment (SOPE) and CSA are proud to announce that there will be reusable take-out mugs in the dining halls to replace the paper cups. In the winter, Carleton students overwhelming voted for this proposal and it’s finally coming to fruition. Last year we were going through roughly 6,000 cups per week. That’s both a huge amount of embodied energy, and a lot of waste. With reusable mugs we can divert that waste away from the compost and landfill. There is just one catch. If students don’t return the mugs Burton and LDC in the meal period after they are used, it is possible that we will run out. The success of this program is completely contingent on student cooperation. We appreciate your help!
