Our Initiatives

Nichols College Dining is proud to have several program initiatives that support sustainability.

Xprss Nap

Xpress Nap Dispensers save energy and waste.  Not only are the napkins are made of 100% recycled paper, the dispensers 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.  

Local Suppliers

At Nichols College we work with our suppliers to source local goods whenever possible. By doing this we help to cutdown gasoline usage and carbon emissions caused by long distance travel for deliveries. This also allows us to give back to our community through supporting local farms and businesses.
