No Tray Earth Day

The 109 schools listed below all went trayless on Earth Day (4/22). That means that theyRiding Off Into the Sunset?  (photo by bradleygee via Flickr) removed trays from at least one dining hall, cafe, student union or other food service venue to reduce the amount of food waste and energy and water usage.

And these are just the Sodexo-supplied schools (well done!) that went without trays. I’m listing them vertically to illustrate just how many colleges and universities participated (109!). The idea is spreading…

Now, let’s hope many of these schools decide to implement trayless dining in the Fall. To ease student adoption of the idea, the best time to begin is at the beginning of the school year.
