Zero waste

Zero waste Imperial aims to change the way we consume on campus and at home. We want to critically evaluate what gets wasted, ways we can prevent this, and try to change people’s attitudes and behaviour towards ‘rubbish’. Raising awareness through public events and publicity will let people make informed decisions about how they consume. We also want to provide valid alternatives to people who want to make a difference. But also try to make being waste free as easy as possible for those that aren’t interested by working with imperial faculty, suppliers and outlets. Find out more about the campaign through the facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/zerowasteimperial/?ref=br_rs

  1. Hi Guys,
    I’m a masters student in Environmental technology and so always on the look out for other ways to be more green. I’ve got a little Idea and would be nice to hear your thoughts on it.
    I was just talking with my French Friend from Paris who just told me about how all Universities in her city have partnered up with local food producers to utilise their spare crops, which would otherwise go to waste.
    It made me think about companies such as Oddbox and Riverford farms. What are your thoughts on potentially partnering with an organisation, such as Oddbox, to use/sell ugly produce that the supermarkets don’t buy, leaving them to rot instead? I’m assuming it would be quite complex to change the supplier for the major outlets on campus, but at least we could have a stall during the farmers market, or a permanent one selling discounted fruit/veg?
    looking forward to hearing from you,
    Sam Baker
