Compostable Coffee Pods

The Green UMW working group is pleased to announce the availability of an alternative to plastic K-Cups®, right here on campus!

The UMW Bookstore offers Boyd’s Coffee compostable pods, which will work in most brewers that accept K-Cup® portion packs, excluding Keurig® 2.0 brewers. With a bio-based filter and a ring made of coffee chaff, Boyd’s pods provide a sustainable single-serve caffeine solution that supports UMW’s goal of reducing plastic waste.

Mix and match by purchasing individual pods, or order a single blend by the case. (When purchasing a case, please allow 5 business days between order and delivery to the Bookstore.)

Departmental and Faculty Staff discounts apply!

Price per case (80 pods per case):

  • 20% Departmental Discount: $68.78
  • 10% Fac/Staff Discount: $77.38

Please contact the University Bookstore for pricing on individual pods or to place an order for a case.

Your interest in and efforts towards reducing single use plastics in accordance with Executive Order 77 are appreciated. The switch to compostable pods will go a long way to reaching our collective goal!

Please contact the UMW Bookstore at sm8306@bncollege.com or x1017 with questions about ordering Boyd’s coffee pods.

Copy Center

Greener Than Yesterday…

Have you noticed anything different with your Copy Center jobs?

To reduce the volume of single use plastics, the Copy Center has made some changes in the packaging of copy jobs sent through inter-campus mail. Most jobs will arrive in reusable boxes or bags. Please help us on our mission to reduce plastic pollution by placing the reusable containers in the outgoing mail for return to the Copy Center, where it will be used to deliver future copy jobs.

Multi-Functional Devices: Greener Machines

Multi-functional devices (MFDs) are centrally located print, copy and scanning devices. The MFDs are a valuable resource, especially in light of current  supply chain and chip production issues that are affecting the availability of desktop printers. Their use also reduces plastic consumption and waste associated with desktop printers. If you need help finding and MFD near you, or would like assistance in using them, please contact the Copy Center at x1935. Instructions for use can also be found here.

Saving files as e-documents rather than printing is another great way to be kind to both the planet and departmental budgets!
