BYOB Week in GID

Posted on 6th April 2017

From 27th to 31st March the department of Geography and International Development held a Bring Your Own Bottle (BYOB) to Work week campaign. The aim was to raise awareness of the usage of plastic bottles and to encourage both staff and students to be more conscientious and to be more ‘waste free’.

The campaign was situated around making staff and students reuse their water bottles to reduce unnecessary waste. However, GID also won a small NUS Green Impact Micro Grant allowing them to purchase 70 reusable NUS Green Impact bottles to give away for free to staff and students.

This campaign was instigated to help support the Green Impact initiatives to reduce, re-use and recycle our waste for a better future. The campaign was brilliantly supported by staff and students within the department and across the University as a whole ………… so many other departments got involved to!
