Eight years ago during his senior year at Shippensburg University, Matt Ramsay was roasting coffee in an air pop popcorn maker. Since then, the SU campus minister has founded Denim, a wholesale coffee roasting company, and is on the cusp of opening a coffee shop in Carlisle this fall with his wife, Kristin.

Shippensburg University’s trash cans overflow with recyclable items — Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donut cups, water bottles, cans and food containers all nestled in a bed of used napkins, stuck together with wads of gum and smeared with wasted drink and food. Right next to these overburdened trash cans are single-stream recycling containers where glass, plastic, aluminum, cardboard, paper and magazines can be recycled.
Joshua Brenneman calculated the amount of recycling SU throws away. 187 recyclables are thrown away daily because students are often unaware of what items are recyclables.
43,158 recyclables are thrown away each semester, including the coffee cups purchased from Dunkin’ Donuts and Starbucks.
Growing up, I was never a fan of sugar cookies. I always ran to chocolate chip or M&M cookies that gave me a tiny hint of chocolate. Sugar cookies always seemed so plain.

These cookies are a game-changer and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
