Sheffield Students' Union

#ReusableRevolution

 

Launched in 2017 the #ReusableRevolution campaign was launched after their Student Life Survey saw that sustainability was important to students.

The union has worked with their on campus suppliers to offer alternative packaging for their students to make a choice as well as a monetary incentive.

Key takeaways;

  • People who use a reusable cup are given a 10p discount off their hot drinks
  • A reusable lunchbox is available to purchase and are given 15p off every New Leaf salad purchase
  • Reusable straws are available to purchase from their coffee and union shops
  • The students’ union shop has a new Eco-friendly section, where you can refill your laundry detergent and fabric conditioner, buy bamboo toothbrushes and household goods made from recycled material and they have recently added a plastic free grain section.
