In today's eco-conscious world, sustainability is not just a buzzword – it's a vital commitment that businesses and individuals must uphold. At Campus Dining by Thompson Hospitality, we're proud to lead the charge in this movement by leveraging innovative digital solutions to minimize our environmental footprint while enhancing guest experience. 


Our transition to digital methods extends beyond mere convenience – it's a fundamental shift towards sustainability. One of our cornerstone initiatives is the digitization of communication with our guests. Through platforms like Popl wristbands, we've bid farewell to traditional paper menus and business cards, opting instead for digital alternatives that streamline information sharing while drastically reducing paper waste. 


But our digital journey doesn't end there. We've integrated NFC technology to create a seamless connection between guests and our dining hub, where they can access menus, THTV, promotions, event calendars, and contact information for every manager with ease. This centralized digital platform not only enhances convenience but also minimizes our reliance on paper-based materials. 


In our commitment to sustainability, we've replaced traditional signage with dynamic digital screens in our dining halls and retail locations. These screens enable real-time updates on upcoming events, promotions, pricing, and menus, eliminating the need for printed materials and reducing waste. 


But sustainability isn't just about environmental impact – it's also about fostering meaningful connections with our guests. That's why we've launched initiatives like "Our DMs Are Open," inviting guests to share feedback and engage with us via social media platforms. Additionally, our DeLuxe Squad VIP membership offers exclusive benefits, including staying connected via text message alerts, ensuring our guests remain informed and engaged at all times. 


By embracing digital solutions and fostering community engagement, we're not just redefining the dining experience – we're paving the way towards a more sustainable future. We invite you to join us on this journey towards sustainability and discover the countless ways digital innovation can make a positive impact on our planet. Together, let's embrace sustainability and create a brighter, greener tomorrow. 


Did you know? 

The average person uses 16 tons of carbon dioxide and methane by our actions yearly.  


There are many ways you can reduce your carbon footprint in your everyday life, here are some ways you can start: 


Reduce Your Energy Usage 

This can be done in your dorm, house, or office space. You can do this by turning off unnecessary lights, using energy-efficient light bulbs, unplugging your devices when not in use, and turning on an energy saver in your device's settings.  


Use Video-Conferencing Tools 

You can also help the environment by increasing your use of video-conferencing tools, such as Skype, Zoom, Google Meet, or Facetime, by using one of the tools, this helps in reducing carbon emissions. 


Take A Walk 

Instead of driving to the dining hall or that class that is a few buildings over, walk there a few times out of the week, which will also reduce carbon emissions. 


Reduce Water Usage 

Reducing your water usage is another excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint. Taking shorter showers, not washing your vehicle as often, turning off the hot water, and using cold water to brush your teeth all play a huge role in conserving energy and water.  


Reduce Food Waste 

Reducing your food waste in the dining hall is how you can contribute to a greener tomorrow, today. Only putting enough food on your plate helps combat food waste.
