Sustainability Tips

  • Coffee is offered at almost every NC State Dining location. If your office or residence hall has its own coffee maker, be sure to buy ground, fair trade, shade grown coffee.
  • Disposable cups cannot be recycled locally here in the City of Raleigh. Help keep disposable cups out of the landfill, bring your own cup, bottle or mug! Receive 10 cents off when you bring your reusable cup to all retail locations on campus.bringing your own
