You can contribute to reducing the impact of food purchases, dining, and events by considering more sustainable options.

Here are some ways to get started:

  1. Bring lunches and snacks in a reusable container.
  2. Select catering options for meetings and events that use reusable products and local/certified sustainable food.
  3. Purchase coffee and tea that is certified Fair Trade or organic.
  4. Use mobile apps, such as Flashfood or Too Good To Go, to get discounts on food items and meals nearby that would normally be tossed at the end of the day.
