Giant Pandas by Jason

Giant Pandas aren’t just an international symbol of adorable-ness, they’re also a symbol of the fight for conservation of endangered species. That’s why we should be overjoyed that the Giant Panda was recently upgraded from ‘endangered’ to ‘vulnerable’ by the IUCN! However, there’s still much work to be done for other animals like the Great Apes. Try researching how you can help them out!

Water Conservation by Kasi

Hey SU students! I know that showers are a great place to contemplate your existence but did you know that the average 5 minute shower takes around 25 gallons of water, and almost 40 gallons in a 10 minute shower? That’s a lot of water! Especially when you think about how many showers you take a week. Try making your shower 2-3 minutes instead and do the earth a solid!

Composting by Baillee

Did you know that between July 2015 and June 2016, Seattle University produced 795 tons of compost? 69 tons were used for on campus landscaping, and the other 686 tons were taken by a composting company and turned into usable material. So keep composting! We saved 795 tons of material from entering a landfill, and gave it a new life!

Food by Mary

Hey SU students, did you know that you can grow food right on campus?   Seattle U has two community garden sites and you can sign up for your own 4’ X 8’ plot by contacting Janice Murphy at  Also check out the Food With Spirit Club’s Facebook page to learn about their Giving Gardens.  Either way, get ready to get your hands dirty and look forward to spring.

5 quick changes you can make for a healthier 2017!

5. GET SOME SLEEP: We know, you’re busy… but getting yourself on a regular sleep schedule can do wonders for everything from stress to muscle recovery.

4. DRINK MORE WATER: If your new year’s resolution has anything to do with health OR money this is the change for you. Drink a full glass of water right when you wake up!

3. SCHEDULE THAT APPOINTMENT: You know the one you’ve been putting off. Whether it’s with a dentist, therapist, primary care provider or someone else – get it on the books!

2. SLOW YOUR ROLL: Take 2 minutes to breathe mindfully… right now… no seriously you’re on Facebook so I now you’ve got two minutes. Set a timer, sit comfortably and breathe thinking about every move the air makes.

1. PRACTICE POSITIVITY: Think if three things that went right today or that you’re grateful for. Reflecting daily on what’s good can change your whole outlook!

Just Add Water

Hydrate the Healthy Way!

  • Great skin, better energy, and healthier weight are some of the side effects of good hydration.
  • Eat your drink: Fruits, vegetables, and soups also contribute to hydration.
  • Bored with plain water? Infuse it with fresh fruit, herbs, or citrus for a flavor boost without calories or added sugar, which can actually be hydrating.

Locally Grown Food: From Farm to Fork

Through their pioneering Farm to Fork program, Bon Appetit aims to source 20% of ingredients from small farms, ranches, and foodcrafters within 150 miles.

They passionately make this commitment because food grown locally:

  • Is fresher, better tasting, and often has greater nutritional value
  • Represents an investment in the health of our communities and the future of our food supply
  • Preserves biodiversity and protects open space

Wild Salmon

Good for you. Good for the Environment.

It’s national seafood month and at Bon Appetit management company we’re celebrating smart seafood choices. Salmon is one of the most popular seafoods in the United States, and it’s no surprise why – it’s delicious, healthy, and super versatile.

They serve only sustainably caught wild Pacific salmon. Why? Most farmed salmon is produced in a manner that is destructive to the environment, and farmed salmon has been shown to pose risks to human health. Their chefs also agree that wild-caught salmon tastes better!

To learn more about the salmon they serve, and how to make ocean-friendly choices at restaurants and the supermarket go to

Composting: Bon Appetit

Composting is the controlled decomposition of waste such as food, plants, and paper into organic matter that can be used as mulch or fertilizer. Composting can significantly benefit the environment by reducing greenhouse gases. Organic waste that is taken to a landfill emits methane, a greenhouse gas that is 25 times more powerful than carbon dioxide.

As part of a low carbon diet, Bon Appetit Management Company has committed to reducing their food waste by 25% , and the use of disposables by at least 10%. In addition to reducing waste in their kitchens, they have hosted guest education campaigns and implemented composting in most of their cafes. As a result of these efforts at Bon Appetit cafes, they divert much of their waste away from landfills.

What you can do: Separate your waste into the appropriate landfill, recycling and compost bins in the cafe. Choose reusable plates, cups, and silverware whenever possible, and purchase only as much food as you expect to eat – or save your leftovers.

Do you have money to burn? …no, you don’t

Americans spend $371 per person, per year on food that gets wasted.

That’s approximately equivalent to:

A flight from Moscow to Bangkok

A tablet computer

187 cartons of eggs

Spread the Word to End the Word!

We are asking you to pledge to stop saying the R-word as a starting point toward making accepting attitudes and communities for all people. The word “retard” is still widely used to degrade and insult people with intellectual disabilities and only serves to reinforce painful stereotypes that negate their value to humanity. This pledge is a small act of solidarity for our fellow people and aligns with Best Buddies activism mission.
