We are pleased to announce that University Catering has switched out almost all of our disposable plates, cups and silverware to an Eco product line.

  • The new plates are made of sugarcane, also known as bagasse. This reclaimed fiber is strong, sturdy, and 100% renewable and compostable.
  • The cutlery is made of 100% renewable resources, and is made with PLA, a plant based plastic that is compostable.
  • Coffee and soup cups are made with 24% post-consumer recycled content and are certified compostable.
