We work together to continually develop and implement sustainable solutions. Through Green Thread, our environmental sustainability platform, we bring innovative and efficient solutions to life. We are passionately focused on reducing the environmental impact within our operations.
Here are just a few ways we work to make our campus more environmentally conscious: Reducing the use of small plastic wears with our skip the straw campaign, recycling fryer oil, promoting sustainability with our meals to go program in our residential dining halls.
Stay Tuned for what we have planed during earth day & earth week. We will have a zero waste event, and lots more to come!
