Plastic lasts ‘forever’. Virtually all the plastic ever produced still exists in the environment in some form. It is ironic that more than 40% of plastic is used just once, then tossed.
Last year, at ACG we discarded thousands and thousands of single-use plastic bottles and cups (see above).
Based on our commitment to enhance our sustainability efforts as a community and in order to establish a sustainability culture on campus, the Office of Public Affairs and the Center of Excellence for Sustainability launched the #ACGgoesplasticfree campaign in the previous academic year (2018 – 2019).
Joining our forces to the global movement, we aim at raising awareness on the harmful consequences of single-use plastic pollution and guide you in making a successful shift towards eliminating single-use plastics from our campus.
Renewing our commitment to raising awareness about the harmful consequences of single-use plastics and to reducing them both on campus and beyond, we are continuing our #ACGGoesPlasticFree Campaign in the academic year 2019 – 2020.
