Green Guide Sustainability Tips - Sustainable Food

Use that Mug!

Use your own mug or Nalgene and get discounts on both hot and cold drinks at the Northstar Café, and make sure to refill your water bottle at Dana instead of buying a bottled drink later.

Fair Trade

Fair trade coffee options, available at the Pub, are both more economically and environmentally friendly.

Organic Dairy Products

It takes about three times the energy to produce a liter of regular milk as organic milk. Look for organic milk, and look for milk that says it does not contain bovine growth hormones (which are rumored to have links to all kinds of scary health problems).
