Dining Services Dining Services

Dining Services debuts mason jars at campus coffee shops. The HSU community has new options for grabbing a quick cup of coffee. In order to promote more sustainable coffee consumption, all HSU coffee shops are now offering pint-sized mason jars for $.75. The campus will continue to offer single-use paper-based coffee cups at $1 each. The most affordable way to purchase coffee on campus continues to be bringing your own reusable coffee mug. Here’s a price breakdown:

$1.50 - bring your own cup
$2.25 - purchase a reusable pint-sized mason jar
$2.50 - purchase a single-use paper cup

Dining Services undertook the effort to offer mason jars after a number of students approached dining staff members about finding more sustainable ways to sell coffee on campus. Instead of banning single-use cups across the board, the campus chose to offer mason jars, a unique and sustainable option.

Students looking for affordable reusable coffee mugs are encouraged to check the Reusable Office Supply Exchange house, located across from the MultiCultural Center.

Free E-Waste Drop-off for HSU Waste Reduction and Resource Awareness Program

Drop off your e-waste, free, on Saturday, April 30, from 9-12 p.m. in the Student Business Services Building parking lot. The event is only open to HSU students, staff, and faculty and an HSU ID will be required for drop off. Please do not bring any hazardous waste items, paint, batteries, or items that would normally go through the campus operations collection process (i.e., items with HSU property ID tags). This FREE event is brought to you by Facilities Management and the Waste Reduction and Resource Awareness Program (WRRAP).

E-Waste is the name given to computers, televisions, stereos, copiers, cell phones and other electronics nearing the end of their “lifecycles.” Many of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled. Unfortunately, discarded electronics is one of the fastest growing segments of our nation’s waste stream. Throwing electronics away can have serious environmental and health consequences because many of the materials used to make electronics are either toxic or hazardous. In California, it is actually illegal to throw electronics into the landfill!

1) What factors are linked to a higher risk of dying from breast cancer?
2) How do we compare with the rest of the state?
