Vanderbilt Univ. sees a decrease in to-go boxes after campaign

The "If You Stay, Use a Tray" campaign's intention was to promote sustainability awareness.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—When Sarah Hunt-Blackwell grabs a meal at Rand Dining Center, she makes sure to get her food on a plate.

It wasn’t always like that. Even when dining in, the sophomore student would sometimes ask for a to-go box.

“I always thought I’d have the potential to leave, but now I need to make the conscious decision to stay or leave,” she said. “If I stay, I usually get an actual plate.”
