Plastic-Free UOB is a student-led society focusing on – you guessed it…plastic. We’ve only been set up since autumn 2019 so we’re very new and still learning!
Our main aim is to spread awareness about the dangers of single-use plastic in our environment. We’re also working to reduce single-use plastic on the University’s campus in a variety of ways and are building relationships with senior members of staff to achieve this.
We also run regular litter picks and canal cleans (the most recent made it to local TV news!), and hold speaker sessions with experts offering advice on how we can all lead a more sustainable lifestyle.
We’re always looking for new members! Find us on social media with @plasticfreeuob on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, or email us on email@example.com.
Join the plastic-free movement!
