June Events

Plastic Free Day

5th June, the Junction, Holloway Road campus

Do your bit for environment and skip plastic to reduce our plastic footprint. That means we don’t buy anything that is made of plastic or contains plastic. We also don’t use anything made of plastic that we have to throw away after using it. So no bananas wrapped in plastic, no plastic bags, no take-away coffee in plastic cups and so on!

Join the Junction outlet to be Plastic-Free - They will use crockery and cutlery rather than disposables. They also will glass bottles for drinks rather than plastic!

How to make a change - scroll down to Action Areas to find out how to start to live plastic free!!

Don’t forget to use #WorldEnvironmentDay and #BeatPlasticPollution when you talk about this event on social media.
