Green&Go Take-out Container System


Green&Go Take-out Container System

Green&Go banner

To further the campus’s sustainability efforts, DHS is implementing a ‘Reusable To-Go’ program utilizing the latest technology. The Green&Go system was funded by the Green Action Fund, with the goal of reducing the use of compostable products in our retail operations. The cost of compostable containers is built into menu prices, so these costs are passed on to all customers. By opting-in to the Green&Go initiative, you will reduce your purchase price for select stations that would otherwise use compostable clamshell style containers.

How does it all work?

  1. Ask for the Green&Go container at select stations in Cafe 65 or Clyde’s
  2. At the register, pay a one-time purchase of $1.00 for the container in addition to your meal. 
  3. Once you're done eating, return the Green&Go container to the OZZI machine located next to the condiment counter in Cafe 65.
  4. Follow directions on OZZI machine, and receive your token that can be used on your next retail purchase.
  5. On your next purchase at Cafe 65 or Clyde’s, request that your food be placed in a clean Green&Go container and you will be asked for your token at the cashier station. If you do not have a token, you will need to purchase the Green&Go container for $1.00 as part of your transaction.
  6. Repeat steps 3, 4, and 5 and help us reduce waste at UCCS!
