Ways we're working toward sustainability
Traditional disposable coffee cups are lined with petroleum based plastic linings. Our biodegradable coffee cups are lined with Ingeo, a plastic made entirely from plant starch.
They can withstand temperatures up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. These compostable coffee cups are also certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute.
Over the past everal years VCC has replaced traditional lighting with LED fixtures. In the first year we saw savings of 39,277 kilowatt hours in the Healing Center and Student Union buildings, and 104,640 in the Main Building. Future plans include installing solar panels on the roof of the office building to cut our energy costs even further.
