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:
-Dairy Products from Baxter's Milk
-Fish from Green Island Fisheries
-Sushi from Bento Nouveau Sushi
-Beef from Atlantic Beef
-Samosas from Staff of Life Healthfood ...and Many More!
