Recycling helps conserve energy and reduce the consumption of natural resources. Recycling used products is one of the best ways to save the environment. It is important to recycle, so as to avoid environmental harm. Used plastic bottles, glass, and newspapers can be effectively recycled to make useful items.
During 2010, MUSC recycled 375.90 tons (749,800 pounds) of card board. The MUSC paper recycling program was a finalist in the 2010 American Forest and Paper Association recycling award. The Food Service employees ensure that the huge volume of boxes received each day are properly recycled.
It is estimated that 8 out of 10 bottles end up in landfills. In an effort to reduce this number, Sodexo is promoting Eco-Reusable Mugs.
When you bring in your own (clean) reusable cup, or mug, to the ART or University Cafeterias, you will receive a $0.25 discount on your purchase from any fountain soda, tea, coffee or juice.
The Eco-Reusable mugs can be purchased in the MUSC cafeterias.
