Earth Week: Weigh the Waste

Tuesday, April 17, 2018 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

40% of all food produced in the U.S.A. is wasted and sent to landfills. During Earth Week 2017, the Weigh the Waste campaign showed that Cypress Lake Dining Hall diners wasted 285 lbs. of food in one lunch period. This year we aim to reduce our environmental impacts by reducing our post-consumer food waste in Cypress Lake.

Help us reduce our food waste and become a Zero Waste University by committing to:

  1. Taking only ONE plate.
  2. Asking for smaller portions.
  3. Geaux back for more (but only if you want to!).
