We are committed to reducing single-use packaging, minimizing our impact on the environment. We have invested heavily in our EcoWare carryout program, purchasing new reusable containers. To keep this option available, we must have these containers returned regularly. EcoWare is approved by the Department of Health and properly sanitized by UVM Dining. 

All first-year and transfer students will receive one complimentary EcoWare membership (cow tag) to participate in the program. Cow tags can be picked up at the EcoWare tabling events in the dining halls for the first few weeks of classes (see schedule below) or anytime at a UVM Dining cash register. If you lose your EcoWare cow tag or container, you will need to buy back into the program for $7.50 payable with Retail Points, Cat$cratch, or credit/debit at the register. 

EcoWare Tabling Events:

  • August 30 - September 1; 11A - 1P - Central Campus Dining
  • September 6-8; 5:30P - 7:30P - Harris Millis Dining
  • September 12-15; 5:30P - 7:30P - Redstone Dining
