Sustainability initiatives on campus with Dining Services

Elon Dining Services has provided aluminum water bottles to students with meal plans. Meal plan combos will now include a filtered water option rather than bottled water in retail locations. Approximately 198,000 bottles of water were used with meal plan combos last year. Please use your water bottle for fountain beverages to help us reduce waste on campus.

Elon Dining Services will be composting in several locations on campus during the fall semester.  More information will be posted on E-net! soon.

Acorn Coffee Shop, The Lighthouse and Brown & Co. employees will be wearing sustainable uniforms.  Their shirts are certified organic cotton and printed with water-based inks. No pesticides, plastic prints or harsh resins are used to produce them.

The Grab-n-Go containers for salads in the retail locations are now biodegradable. It is important to be thinking green – and not just in regards to the lettuce!
