February is Sustainability Month at King's!

It's time to focus on how each of us can contribute to a more sustainable future. During this month, events, workshops, and campaigns raise awareness and promote sustainable living, emphasising collective action for a healthier planet and society.

On 29 February, King's is hosting a clothes swap event, offering a sustainable way to refresh your wardrobe. By swapping items, participants reduce the demand for new clothing production and promote conscious consumption. All you need to do is bring along an item and swap it with an exciting new find! Find out more here.

Embracing a sustainable lifestyle is easier than you think. Here are some easy ways to be more sustainable in your daily life:

  • Reduce waste by reusing items and recycling materials like paper, plastic, glass, and metal. Don’t forget you can get 25p off at The Shack if you bring your own reusable cup.
  • Conserve energy by turning off lights, unplugging electronics, and opting for energyefficient appliances.
  • Choose sustainable transportation options like walking, biking, carpooling, or using public transit.
  • Minimise single-use plastics by using reusable alternatives like cloth bags, stainless steel water bottles, and bamboo utensils.
  • Across KCLSU, we have several filtered water stations where you can get fresh water without using single-use plastics.

?These simple steps can make a big difference in reducing your environmental impact and promoting a more sustainable lifestyle. Let's embrace initiatives like the clothes swap and support the Sustainable Development Goals this month. Together, we can create positive change for a thriving planet and shared prosperity. Join us in making a difference!
