Stanford is REALLY serious about Compostable utensils!

Union Square, The Axe & Palm and Russo Cafe became billed as “waste-free” last week; through the combined efforts of   Students for a Sustainable Stanford (SSS) and Stanford Hospitality and Auxiliaries, the eateries agreed to use only compostable or recyclable materials and were equipped with bins to dispose of these items.

Meanwhile, a new course on campus sustainability has students analyzing the impact of waste at places like Tresidder’s Union Square, where hundreds of students eat daily.

Sounds like gr8 news! Lets hope they are actually looking at “compostable” alternatives that don’t end up in landfills. Read more about it on the Standord Daily’s Waste not Want not article.
