Proposed Reusable Mug Program

April 29, 2019

The reusable mug program is a proposed student initiative supported by Colby’s Sustainability Office, and is currently open to questions, comments and  suggestions from the Colby community.

In this program, Dining Services would purchase a reusable mug for every Colby student to replace the wasteful single-use cups currently in use. Students will be able to bring their own Colby mug when they want to take drinks out of the dining halls. We hope to implement this program starting in the fall of 2019. The ultimate mission of the program is not only to reduce waste, but also to encourage and facilitate eco-friendly habits which students will continue throughout their lives.

Please see the attached documents if you have further questions, comments or suggestions. We want to hear from you! If you have feedback or ideas for this program, please fill out the form so your ideas can be incorporated into the program!
