a different way of thinking

Using Green Products

We use recycled materials, for example,

  • Campus identification signage hung from posts made from recycled post-consumer plastics.

  • Carpet tile made of recycled material. When worn, it’s shipped back to the factory to be recycled rather than disposed of in a land fill. The adhesive used allows for the product to be easily lifted and replaced should any tile be damaged.

  • Flooring made of 45 percent post-consumer recycled fiber uses about 45 percent less material than virgin timber.

  • All paper products are made with recycled fiber.

  • Food Service uses nearly 100 percent compostable paper products in the Dining Hall, Grab and Go, Jake’s Java and Jake’s Place.
