Our Eco Promise to You:
MWR is committed to improving our processes today for a better, cleaner, safer environment tomorrow. We have partnered with DLA Installation Operations at Columbus Environmental Division to identify ways we can be more eco-friendly today, and tomorrow!
Our Eco Promise principles (expand to see all current Eco Promises):
Reduce plastic and Styrofoam usage
- All MWR retail bags are now reusable, paper or compostable.
- Cafe 20 now utilizes eco-friendly fiber food containers (eliminated Styrofoam)
Offer Eco-friendly options to our customers

Develop pollinator and native prairie habitats on the installation
