William & Mary Dining – Meet the new Eco Emporium!

October 28, 2011

W&M Dining takes part in many initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint. Sustainability is extremely important to us and the dining program that we have on campus. Monday, October 24 marked the grand opening of W&M’s newest shop for sustainability! Located just inside the Students’ X-Change in Sadler Center, the Eco Emporium has green products for your everyday needs. Such products include dish soap, laundry detergent, and all-purpose cleaner that are formulated from plant-derived cleaning agents and whose bottles are made from recycled materials.

New Forest Earth provides organic chocolates, seed jewelry, and handmade notebooks. The notebooks are made from recycled paper, flower petals, leaves, and sticks. To round out the collection, T-shirts and water bottles promoting W&M student Corbett Drummey’s campaign against bottled water. The grand opening was celebrated with excitement by the W&M Dining staff and sustainability interns as they saw their vision come to life. Students now have the option of easily accessible green products right in the Students’ X-Change!
