ASLU Greenware

the Associated Students of Linfield University (ASLU) maintains a set of reusable cups, plates, and flatware that are available to student activities and events at literally no cost. 

Simply request to use it (currently, there is no form on Engage so reach out to Emma Campbell, the president of ASLU). Campbell says that there are enough sets to accommodate up to 300 people.

Once your event is over, drop all dishes off at Dillin Dining Hall, where the diners’ dirty dishes go. Dillin charges a small cleaning fee to ASLU.

Campbell says the goal of the Greenware program is two-part. First, it reduces costs for clubs and activities (no need to buy plastic forks every meeting!). Second, it helps reduce the demand for single-use items. Win-win!
