Plastic Diet and Project Envy want to see Auckland University become a sustainable Uni. Currently the food vendors at the UoA literally generate truckloads of unnecessary plastic waste. Not only are most meals served in plastic, but often this is polystyrene - one of the most environmentally harmful types of plastic!
Other universities, including AUT, have discounts for students bringing their own coffee cup or container for food. It's standard in many places to use biodegradable packaging. We're asking UoA food vendors to get up to speed and be environmentally responsible.
Sign if you agree!
I support food and beverage vendors on campus providing a 50c discount to people bringing their own cup or plate/container, and using only fully biodegradable packaging and crockery.
