GID does ‘BYOB’ to Work

Posted on 16th February 2016

Week commencing 22nd February the team at Geography and International Development (GID) plan to hold a ‘Bring Your Own Bottle’ to work campaign to encourage staff across the department to be more ‘waste free’ conscientiousness in support of the university’s Green Impact programme aiming to reduce, re-use and recycle waste for a better future.

Ingrained habits and convenience usually leads to purchasing drinks rather than bringing in our own bottles. Why do we really feel it’s easier to buy a disposable bottle of water than finding a place to fill your reusable bottle? Do our efforts really matter? Can one person bringing their own mug, glass or water bottle really make an impact on the environmental problems we face today?

The thing is, if we were alone in our efforts, then no. But as a collective, we can have an impact, helping us to transform the environmental impact on the way we work and learn. All our efforts lead to positive and meaningful changes to our department’s environmental performance.

 

 

Fancy joining us that week on our campaign?

Whether student or staff, why not tweet us with your BYOB: @GIDchester
