Queen's Engineering Society - Services - The Tea Room

The Tea Room is a new student service at Queen's University that is striving to incorporate environmental sustainability and education into the world of coffee, tea and cafes. The Tea Room opened October 5, 2006.

The broad goal is to create a welcoming and engaging student environment. This would be a stage for the education of patron on their worldly ecological footprint, and empowerment to take manageable, proactive steps to minimize our daily negative impacts.

Opening initiatives include a vermi-composter program, an energy monitoring program as well as a "carry your travel mug" campaign, where discounts were and still are provided to those who bring a travel mug to be filled.

Famous quotes containing the words room and/or tea:

    There is only room in the lifeboat of your life for one, and you always choose yourself, and turn your parents into whatever it takes to keep you afloat.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    My tea is nearly ready and the sun has left the sky;
    It’s time to take the window to see Leerie going by;
    For every night at tea-time and before you take your seat,
    With lantern and with ladder he comes posting up the street.
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)
