Sustainability Tip #13: It’s more sustainable to dish-wash your dishes and not rinse them off beforehand. The best thing todo is to scape the remaining food into the trash and then just load the dishwasher without pre-rinsing.
We are pleased to announce the official launch of our new SA Safe Ride Home Service, which will be available beginning tonight at 1:00a.m. in time for your use during finals week.
