The Students' Union is pleased to announce the opening of a new Zero Waste Shop based on the ground floor of the Students' Union building. The store, which is open every Monday 12:30 - 15:30, is a plastic-free refillery and boasts deeply discounted prices. Students' can bring along an empty container and fill up on staple ingredients like vegetables, snacks, and eco-friendly products – helping to save money whilst also helping the environment by eliminating the need for single-use plastics.
Students' Union Vice President for Communities, Ainhoa Burgos Aguilera said:
"I've been blown away by the popularity of the Zero Waste Shop. Our goal is to help the community by providing access to low-cost food – we even offer a 50% student discount on top of already super low prices! We hope to encourage our community to shop sustainably while helping them during a crisis when prices keep going up.
"I'd like to thank all our amazing student volunteers who give up their time to help run the shop and make this initiative possible."
