Sustainability at Ithaca College Dining Services has taken flight and we have finally found a great way to tell everyone about our initiatives, both the big, and the small, as they are happening. Welcome to our blog!
We are the student sustainability interns, Sofia Johnson and Stephanie Piech.
Sofia Johnson is a sophomore Environmental Studies major with a concentration in Outdoor and Environmental Education. She helps to plan events, write the EcoDining newsletter, recommend changes in business practices, and initiates incentives for students to make personal sustainability commitments.
This semester, Sofia will be focusing on altering Ithaca Dining Services purchases through labels that guarantee seafood sustainability. As of now, her project is centered around implementing sustainable seafood on campus. She hopes to pursue other types of food after this completion.
Look for more with updates on new initiatives soon! If you have any questions or comments about sustainability in dining, feel free to post! Also, check out the dining website: ithacadiningservices.com and click on sustainability or email us atmailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
