Carbon footprint infographic.  V good up to the offsetting section...offsetting is only part of the answer, because it cannot take up all the CO2 that we are pumping into the atmosphere (and it is subject to a range of environmental variables) : the key is stopping putting the greenhouse gases into the air.

Global warming pollution from carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases caused by human activities is heating up our atmosphere, melting our polar ice caps, and threatening species like polar bears.

We LOVE the environment, therefore we like that all food outets on campus use BioCup paper cups. The production of BioCups' bioplastic lining emits fewer greenhouse gases compared to conventional plastic production. Biopak, the producers of BioCup, state that their paper is sourced from managed plantations and participate in a carbon offset plan.
