Every year, at ACG we discard thousands and thousands of single-use plastic bottles and cups. Over 84,000 plastic bottles and 120,000 plastic cups to be exact (2018).
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 expanding our #ACGGoesPlasticFree Campaign to the 2019 – 2020 academic year
Join the movement and let’s beat plastic pollution on and off campus!
