3 restaurants at Boston University certified green

Three restaurants at Boston University's Center for Student Services have qualified as Certified Green Restaurants, according to the Green Restaurant Association. BU Today reports that the three eateries--Rize, Late Night Kitchen, and Fresh Food Company at Marciano Commons—received more than 300 points and a four-star rating from the association. To qualify for certification, applicants must get at least 100 points across seven environmental standards: water efficiency, waste reduction and recycling, sustainable furnishings and building materials, sustainable food, energy, disposables, and chemical and pollution reduction. They also must have a full-scale recycling program and not use Styrofoam.
