Choose to Reuse: Reusable Containers

The University of Pittsburgh’s goal is to serve serve half of all to-go meals and beverages in reusable containers by 2025. Please help us get there by participating in the “Choose to Reuse” Reusable Container Program.

Every month, Pitt’s Oakland campus uses nearly 50,000 single-use disposable cups for beverages and 225,000 to-go packages for food. The majority of this single-use, disposable packaging is not recyclable on or off-campus and end up in the landfill. Plastic pollution and litter have an enormous detrimental environmental impact on our ecosystems.

The University of Pittsburgh’s goal is to serve serve half of all to-go meals and beverages in reusable containers by 2025.  Please help us get there by participating in the “Choose to Reuse” Reusable Container Program.

Order your meal in a reusable container at participating dining locations and help reduce single-use disposable to-go containers on campus.

All students, faculty, and staff with a Panther Card can use the Choose to Reuse program for free! Visit a cashier at designated dining locations to enroll in the program.
