UMSU runs a great food service outlet called Degrees. Recently, Degrees move to biodegradable take-out containers from styrofoam. When I did my food services research while on UMSU Council, one of the things I found was that cold drink cups could be made of corn. The University of Guelph was already doing this back in 2004 and it is something that I still believe that the University of Manitoba should be doing.
UMSU took this a lot further. Clearly a lot of research was done by many people at UMSU to find containers for hot products. Nicely done everyone at UMSU.
CBC News even has the story: Student diner goes green with biodegradable takeout boxes
