Utensil-Free Wednesday

May 28 2020

The cafeteria stopped providing plastic utensils on Wednesdays to reinforce the habit of reuse and reduce plastic waste.

Summary

Students also started a “Utensil-free Wednesdays” program in the cafeteria.  The cafeteria manager partnered with the students to implement the program by not providing plastic utensils on Wednesdays.  Students brought forks, spoons or chopsticks from home to use instead of getting them from the cafeteria, thus diverting hundreds of plastic utensils from the waste stream.
