In the Ateneo, the administration highly encourages its students to give their best efforts in stopping plastic pollution. They have many projects and a number of ways in helping the environment.
In the cafeterias and canteens of the school, stalls have a “bring-your-own-baunan” campaign, where students bring their Tupperware and utensils, instead of using plastic plates and utensils. In return, the students get to have a 5-peso reduction in the price of their food. Since the stalls do not use plastics, the plates and utensils that they give is washable and reusable.
The Ateneo has a number of Sustainability Guidelines, which guides the university to help the environment for development. For food, Ateneo aims to minimize food wastage, and is committed to promote sustainability by using less packaging, reusable packaging, and/or renewable and recyclable packaging materials.
