Why reuse?

Why choose to reuse?

Every plastic take-away container you’ve ever used still exists. Imagine how many more you could prevent adding to that number if you never used another, starting today.

The Choose to Reuse Plate Program makes it easier than ever to avoid single-use waste when purchasing food and drink on campus. By simply choosing a reusable bowl over a plastic container, you are reducing your individual waste.


  • No need to carry around your own container
  • No need to wash your own dishes
  • No contribution to waste
  • You can even take your dish away from Union House and return it on your next visit.

We kindly ask anyone choosing to reuse to return their dishes. The continual operation of this service relies on the goodwill of our students and staff.
