Reflecting on Blacksburg Sustainability Week

Hard to believe Sustainability Week was almost a month ago – hope you had as much fun as we did! While Sustainable Dining Services encourages eco-friendly behavior every week, we wanted to share our highlights from some of the fun events put on by Sustainable Blacksburg, both on campus and around town:

We caught you green-handed with your reusable to-go containers, shopping locally at the Farmer’s Market (with reusable bags!), and with your Dining Services reusable Camelbak water bottle:

We enjoyed dining hall specials with locally-grown ingredients – this butternut squash lasagna at Farms & Fields was *so* yummy:

Students and community members alike attended the documentary screening of “New Farms, Big Success” at the YMCA and learned all about the benefits of small-scale sustainable agriculture:

Students cut the cars and “bike-mobbed” over to the Y for the event!

Thanks for making Sustainability Week so great, and keep up the good work! Don’t forget to check back here for more information about how to be more sustainable with Dining Services.
