At the 2018 Students’ Union AGM students voted for the SU to work to lobby the University to reduce disposable and single-use plastics on campus.
We have had a real success with the University agreeing to remove disposable, non-reusable coffee cups (that will save over 100,000 non-recyclable cups per year) and now the SU is pleased to announce we have removed plastic bags from all our shops.
So next time you buy anything from the SU expect to pick up your goods in one of our reusable, recyclable paper bags free of charge.
The SU is committed to being a sustainable organisation, working with students to ensure we build a more sustainable University and future. If you have further ideas on ways to reduce single-use plastics than we want to hear it, just email firstname.lastname@example.org
