The school caf uses recycled paper plates and corn-plastic utensils, instead of reusable dishware, because the school caf does not have an industrial size dishwasher, or a water hook-up large enough to support one, so it must use disposable dishware.

People may bring their own reusable cups, dishware, and plates to the school caf. You dont have to use the dishware provided by the school (which has been shown to not be that compostable after all, and which our farmer cannot compost). The school caf will put stuff in/on dishes you bring in! Bring your own water bottle, coffee mug, Tupperware/wrap-up mat, and utensils to reduce your waste, and save yourself and the school money.
