We all know by now the negative impacts that plastic production and pollution has. As a university we should be setting an example to other students, staff and other universities that we are aware and care about this issue. I want the university's cafes and shops to offer plastic-free sandwiches and options to refill your own water bottle or coffe container. We can lead by example and become one of the most consciencious and responsible universities!
The world needs to put a stop to the thoughtless use of single-use plastics. We go through so many wrappers and packaging without thinking twice. Busy students that are revising or running from one lecture to another will pick up water bottles and on the go meals wrapped in wasteful packaging. We must act as the responsible uinversity that we are and take steps towards changing students attitudes.
