#SustainableUnion 

It's not easy being green, but as one of our core Game Changers we encourage sustainability wherever we can.

As a Union we're here to support students, and lead the way to help keep it green with Eco Tips, supporting Green Themed Student Groups or running green campaigns!
 
We also lead the way in our Venues...
Squeezebox offers an oat milk alternative, bring your own mug incentives, PLA cups lids and straws and fairtrade teas all as standard and without passing the costs onto our customers! In our latest Ember Lounge refurbishment looked at Eco-Ways to remake and re-use and we that's just to name a few!
