The Dining Services Green Team is a new initiative on campus that is promoting current sustainable dining projects. Turner Place has unique waste stations that allow for composting, recycling and landfill-ing. During peak lunch hours (11 -2), Dining Services Green Team Members guide their peers through the process of properly sorting their waste.
You, too, can be a part of the Dining Services Green Team!

How did you hear about the Dining Services Green Team: I heard about the Green Team from the Facebook page for The Dining Services at Kentland Farm Volunteer Program.
Favorite part of the Dining Services Green team?: My favorite part about the Green Team is seeing the transition from people just throwing away trash in whichever trash can they see first, to now seeing people actually take a few seconds to stop and separate their trash into compost, recyclables, and landfill materials. This is a rewarding experience because it makes you feel that people actually care about improving the environment.
