If you haven’t heard yet, we at University Of New Haven Dining have reduced the amount of straws on campus in an effort to lower our plastic usage and waste. It’s estimated that we use over 500 million straws a day in America (ecocycle.org) and we are putting our oceans and marine life in danger.
What does that mean for us? At Marketplace & Food on Demand we have eliminated straws but have no fear, you can still have a drink to go. All you have to do is put a coffee cup lid on the Pepsi cup and it makes for a throw back sippy cup. All locations that serve smoothies (i.e. Jazzmans and N’rgize) will distribute straws with a smoothie purchase.
Please join us in the fight to preserve our oceans, keep the waters clean, and wildlife happy.
