(Sept. 28, 2010)--Now you can eat and drink green at UTSA. The new Green Thread reusable cup sold at several UTSA dining venues quenches thirst and cuts waste. As of last week, more than 400 have been sold this semester.

The Green Thread cup is available for purchase at Chili's Too, P.O.D. Express (newly opened in the Humanities and Social Sciences Building), C3 Store and the Downtown Campus Frio Street Building food court. You pay $4.99 plus tax and receive fountain drink refills at all UTSA dining venues for 99 cents.

And, the new Eco-To-Go container is available at the Roadrunner Cafe and C3 Store in the University Center. Pay a refundable $7 deposit for the special reusable plastic take-out container, provide your name and e-mail, and you're good to go with no wasteful cardboard. Bring your Eco-To-Go container with you to the Roadrunner Cafe, and you'll have a meal-to-go.

Faculty and staff members who purchase a $250 meal plan receive a $30 bonus, free Eco-To-Go container and free Green Thread reusable cup. With the $150 faculty and staff meal plan, receive a $12 bonus and free Green Thread reusable cup. (Read details about UTSA meal plans.
