Messiah College is committed to being a good steward of
the earth. We have moved to a tray-less meal system in Lottie which
has reduced food waste and decreased water usage and energy costs.
Compostable food waste is shared with the Sustainability Collaboratory
for use in the gardens throughout campus. When possible, we purchase
locally grown produce to support local farmers and decrease fuel costs
for shipping products across the country. In addition, we use recycled
products, save paper by switching to electronic communications, and
recycle materials whenever possible.
