The Student Sustainability Ambassadors Program (SSAP) was born in January 2020 to break down barriers, increase collaboration, and reduce resources used for sustainability initiatives at McMaster. SSAP is a joint effort between Hospitality Services and the Academic Sustainability Program. It is meant to allow students to learn, collaborate and support each other with sustainable initiatives on campus.
Wellness and Sustainability is an integral part our work at Hospitality Services. We recognize our ability to support the campus community in every action we take as a department. This report highlights our projects and initiatives that could not have succeeded without the collaboration of our team members and partners.
Takeout containers and packaging contribute to a large percentage of our waste as they travel from restaurant to landfill. Help us reduce our impact on the environment by participating in our Choose to Reuse program at Bridges, East Meets West, and Centro@Commons.
The Okanagan Charter is an international charter for health promoting universities and colleges to confront increasingly complex issues related to the health, well-being and sustainability of people and the planet.
In addition to china and our eco-containers, we’ve made the switch to compostable cutlery, coffee cups, paper straws and take out containers. Customers can dispose of these in organic waste bins across campus.
Hospitality Services understands that we are in a position of opportunity and challenge that goes beyond simply providing menu options; our actions impact on the environment.
