This year our annual campaign will be exploring the growing issue of plastic waste, ways we can all reduce our own use of single-use plastics, and concerns about plastics recycling and evidence that the plastics industry has been deliberately hiding the scale of the problem from consumers. Through the campaign we will work to educate our community about these issues and highlight our own efforts to reduce plastic waste on campus, including the implementation of our new ban on single-use plastic water bottles and plastic straws.

Join us for a series of events exploring the theme of Pass on Plastic. More details coming soon!
