Many college campuses have started to remove cafeteria trays from the menu. This has a very positive impact on the expense, the environment and people’s health. It takes ½ gallon of water to clean each tray. Without a tray, people take 25% less food and waste a lot less food. In addition it is becoming a trend to install napkin dispensers that only give one napkin at a time.
With all the current college campuses that are participate, it is going to save 10,000,000 gallons of water, 23,000 trees, 500,000 gallons of gas and 5.5 Kilowatts of power this year alone. What do you think would happen if this same principle was distributed to all college campuses, middle school and high school?
