Waste and Food
Bellevue College is working to increase food sustainability on campus through a variety of programs, including:
- Bellevue College Garden
- Garden Club at BC (Facebook)
- Sustainable Foods Group
- Urban Homesteader – 2014 Newsletter Jan Feb Mar
Bellevue College seeks to reduce waste through reducing consumption, reuse and diversion from the landfill. The Bellevue College cafeteria offers some organic and fair trade offerings, including coffee, all served on compostable materials (read more about Sustainability in Foods Services). Nearby, the student garden offers students opportunities to get their hands dirty. Cafeteria waste oil is sold for the production of biodiesel, composting is picked up by Cedar Grove and recycling is promoted to divert refuse to alternatives. The bookstore has banned plastic bags.
