By protecting and improving our environment, the communities where we do business and the students we serve, Sodexo makes every day a better day and every tomorrow a better tomorrow.

Sustainability Initiatives

Your Sodexo Campus Dining Team is dedicated to sustainability.  We know we can all work together to make a positive impact right here at Laramie County Community College: Wyoming. In addition to the many initiatives we take on as a company, we have implemented the following programs specific to Laramie County Community College: Wyoming.

Waste Reduction Efforts

Recycling

On campus we recycle the following products: cardboard, glass, aluminum, paper, plastic.

Xprss Nap Dispensers

Xprss Nap Dispensers save energy and waste.  The napkins are made of 100% recycled paper and the dispenser will encourage customers to take (and waste) fewer napkins. Energy is saved because less power is used to recycle paper products than to create them from virgin material.  

APEX Dishwashing System

APEX combines technology and products designed to save water and energy, minimize the impact of products on the environment, and has a built-in method of measuring results. The APEX management approach uses a tablet PC and wireless technology to communicate with the system’s controller to download, process and analyze data to establish each foodservice operation’s “rack-to-guest ratio.” By monitoring and improving this ratio, the system helps reduce the amount of water and energy used at each facility, and improve total operational efficiency.

Recycling Fryer Oil into Biofuel

French fries to fuel.  Indeed, our fryer oil is recycled into biodiesel that is used to power a variety of vehicles  - from delivery  fleets to farm equipment.

Local Results:  100% of our fryer oil is recycled into biofuel, which is used as a replacement for traditional fossil fuels in industrial environments.

Local / Seasonal / Responsible Sourcing

Local Farms 

We work hard to get as many ingredients locally as possible. Our professionally-trained chefs write our menus to take advantage of the fresh fruits and vegetables that are naturally in season.

Aspretto

Going forward by giving back.  We are proud to feature 100% Transfair, Fair Trade USA certified aspretto coffee and 100% USDA certified organic and ethically sourced Numi teas. Everything that touches the product is green, from the 10% post-consumer fiber cups to the renewable resource stirrers to the fair trade sugar wrapped in recyclable paper and printed with vegetable dye.

At LCCC we serve Aspretto Coffee, which is organic and fair trade certified. The four key principles of the brand are the Environment, Social Responsibility, Diversity and Health & Wellbeing. All of our point of sale materials are made from 100% recycled material, or selected to respect the environment. Even the panels are made from 100% recycled aluminium. All of our products are fully traceable so we can guarantee they are 100% naturally grown. In addition, for every pound of coffee and tea sold a financial contribution, 10 cents and 5 cents respectively, will be donated to the Sodexo Foundation, a non-profit organization, helping some of the 36 million people at risk of hunger in the United States. The environment and your pocketbook win! Bring your own reusable cup or purchase an Aspretto reusable mug to purchase coffee on campus and save!
