We work together to continually develop and implement sustainable solutions. Through Green Thread, our environmental sustainability platform, we bring innovative and efficient solutions to life. We are passionately focused on reducing the environmental impact within our operations.
Here are just a few ways we work to make our campus more environmentally conscious:
Reusable To-Go Containers
Reusable Cup Program

Lean-Path Food Waste Minimization
In 2018, USF was selected to be a part of Lean Path Phase II of the post-consumer pilot. The LeanPath Post Consumer Pilot is designed to identify and measure the impact on how much food waste is produced by customers when you educate them on what is currently being wasted. Originally we were measuring post-consumer food waste without students’ knowledge but obtained the digital signage screens in Spring of 2018. These screens allow the Hub to Display information about how much is currently being wasted. The digital signage is accompanied with other communication about waste minimization to connect knowledge with action.
