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

  • All of our latex balloons are now 100% biodegradable latex and come with "dispose of me properly" instructions.

Develop pollinator and native prairie habitats on the installation

  • Our Hope Garden now includes pollinator flowers and shrubs.
  • Eagle Eye Golf Course in now home to three Bluebird Boxes (our Eco-Helpers Bluebird Box Team works to maintain these boxes).

Utilize renewable energy sources

Offer eco-friendly giveaways and programs

  • Annual Trash to Treasures Workshop in April.
  • Annual Shred Day in May.
  • All 2019 MWR promotional items are eco-friendly.  **As part of the Trees for the Future program, trees have been planted on behalf of DSCC-MWR that will remove 100 pounds of pollution from the global atmosphere, while protecting lands and assisting the natural return of past diversity.**

 

Manage food waste diversion and composting program at food service operations

Utilize eco-friendly products to clean and landscape MWR facilities

Maximize recycling efforts

  • Our Child Development Center now recycles white & scrap paper in the classroom.
