Going Greener | March 01, 2007
Colby students this week found hundreds of new travel mugs in the dining halls, allowing them to grab one to keep their coffee, tea, and cocoa warm on their way to class. When they bring the mugs back to a dining hall the next day, the staff washes them for reuse. The program allows Dining Services to stop providing disposable paper cups and is one of many green initiatives at Colby.
and here's what I sent to my editor:
Colby Students had a pleasant surprise when they arrived at breakfast on Tuesday
morning and found hundreds of new travel mugs waiting for them. Now, students can grab
a travel mug to keep their coffee or tea warm on their way to class, and then bring
the mug back to any dining hall at the next meal to be washed. Using the travel mugs
allows Sodexo to stop providing disposable paper cups. This is all part of Colby?s
Green campaign and Sodexo?s continueing efforts to reduce waste.
So, you can see that there's a lot of differences...
But, it's cool none the less.
P.S. Blogging should return to normal somewhat soon, but right now I'll be busy for another few weeks. I'm acting in a play that goes up tonight (we'll do three performances over the next three days), and I'm also doing something else that I can't talk about in such a public location (at least, not until monday), so, I'll be out of it for a little bit longer. Sorry, remember, Free Ice-Cream.
