Green Impact Campaign: Stationery Amnesty

Posted on 31st January 2017

As part of the University’s Green Impact campaign, we aim to take part in a stationery amnesty to embrace a low carbon future through reducing and reusing!

What is it? A stationery amnesty is when everyone in the department is invited to get rid of their unwanted stationary, and then it’s redistributed around the building to those who need it. This saves money, as you don’t need to buy new stationery, prevents items going to landfill unnecessarily and frees up space.

So for one week only Monday 6th – Friday 10th February, the department of Geography & International Development will be collecting unwanted stationery from staff desks and drawers so that it can be redistributed and used by other people within the department who do need it.

I’m sure we’ll be amazed at how much stuff is returned!
