COVID-19 safety guidelines have changed many of RIT Dining's sustainability efforts. Here are some efforts that you can still do:
Whether dining in or taking out, please be mindful of product and food waste – take only what you will eat and what you need.
While we are not providing resuable Ozzi containers or promoting the reuse of mugs in our coffee shops at this time, there are a number of reusable items that you can use. You can ditch the disposables by switching to reusable items such as bags, straws, utensils, mugs, bottles, and containers.
You will be provided a to go container with every RIT Dining meal, but when you are finished eating don’t forget to recycle! Single stream recycling bins can be found in all dining locations to recycle many food and meal containers and packaging. You can also use the on-campus bottle return to get your 5 cent deposit back from beverage bottles.
Grow Your Own or Buy Local
Did you know that after it is harvested, produce loses nutrients as it ages? Eating locally grown foods ensures that you are getting the fresh, flavorful food with the highest nutrient content possible. It also helps to support and grow the local economy. Find out how you can take advantage of all of the opportunities to enjoy local foods at RIT here.
