By getting involved in reducing the amount of single-use plastic we use at the University you’re helping us to achieve our ambitious target. One of the plastic-free team will be in touch shortly to discuss your involvement in the pledge. In the meantime have a look at the current opportunities below:

  • Help map single-use plastic
    If you can review your work or study area to understand where single-use plastics are being used, and contribute to our mapping exercise, follow this link to our online survey or download the 2023PlasticMappingSurvey
  • Become a staff sustainability architect
    Do you want to help deliver plastic-focussed sustainability projects specific to your work area? Find out more about being a Staff Sustainability Architect here.
  • Develop a Blueprint plan
    Work with the Sustainability Service to develop a Blueprint plan for your school or service. This process will identify sustainability impacts and opportunities for your team in order to develop an action plan bespoke to your area of work.
  • Join the Living Lab Programme
    Undertake research focused on single-use plastic solutions and innovation through your degree course or our Living Lab programme.

Remember, if you know of a solution to reduce or remove single-use plastic where you work or study, then please do it and tell us all about it at or using the #2023PlasticFree!
