Sustainability While Dining

Eat less meat

The average American eats enough meat to get the amount of protein recommended for Olympic athletes. Meat intensive diet is hard on the environment because livestock require lots of land area and resources to grow. Many large livestock operations also release harmful pollutants to our waterways.

Don't use disposables

When possible, always use a ceramic plate, glass and silverware when dining in... but there are times when polystyrene containers are the only options.

Lunch icon

Avoid takeout

When given the option of for here or to go, reduce the unnecessary waste by dining in and only taking what you will eat. This is an easy way of reducing consumption and saving some money.
