Just Eat It
Students helped raise awareness about food waste in halls, and offered tips and support to help recycle more.
Students from Just Eat It worked with the Sustainability Team to hold pop-up information stands at the University's Halls of Residences.
Just Eat It is a pop-up food rescue café which turns food destined for bins into delicious and healthy meals. The aim of the recent events was to promote recycling and encourage students to reduce food waste and to compost any food that is wasted.
The pop-up stands were visited by over 500 students, who were encouraged to recycle more and who also had the opportunity to feed back to the Sustainability team on recycling facilities in their halls.
More events are planned for the next term, including our annual Bristol Big Give, aiming to divert tonnes of reusable items from landfill from end of term student waste while raising thousands of pounds to support local charities.
