Does campus dining operations provide reusable containers for to-go food that are returned for cleaning and re-use?:

A brief description of the reusable to-go container program:

Earlham has had a reusable to-go container program in place since 1997 as the result of student’s goal to eliminate the use of Styrofoam on campus. A Student/faculty/staff member signs up for the program in the dining service office and are given a reusable container that they trade for a clean container each time they take a meal to-go.
