Let's Talk Trash: Campaign Week March 2021

About the campaign

It's time for your student-led Sustainability Committee to run their annual campaign week! This year, the group have decided to focus on what we can all do to reduce our waste and impact on the planet. Over this week, we’ll be exploring five different areas you can take action: plastic, recycling, fashion, food and zero-waste living.

This will include a live workshop with Bristol Textile Quarter on Tuesday evening, and an Instagram live with local zero waste shop, Zero Green, on Thursday evening. We’re also running a plastics competition and slow fashion giveaway, as well as sharing information and low waste tips. All our events and themes are listed below. 

So get involved and Let’s Talk Trash!
