Across NTU, we use a range of plastic products in all sorts of ways and the Sustainable Development Team is exploring how we can reduce our consumption of single use plastic, but we need your help!
We have launched our Plastic Planet campaign to raise awareness, encourage positive behaviour changes and to collect feedback from staff and students on what they would like NTU to do.
We are currently working closely with the catering department on plastic reduction and for 'Bring Your Own' Week we encourage staff and students to bring their own cups to the Taste outlets around the University, where a discount is given for every hot drink in a reusable cup. Don't worry if you haven't got your own cup yet, buy one from Taste and you will get half off your first drink! The UK throws away 2.5 billion coffee cups a year so now is the time to rethink our habits.
Water points are available around the campuses too (find out exactly where here) so why not refill a bottle as well? In 2016, a million disposable plastic bottles were sold globally every minute so we can all do our bit to stop adding to the problem.
If you have any feedback for the team, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
