Student Christmas Message

Dear all,  

As Christmas is approaching, and many get into the Yuletide spirit, we are all looking forward to a well-earned break and a festive chance to recharge and see our friends and loved ones. 

During this time, please remain mindful of the sustainability of the season and its effects on your planet. Consider small, positive changes to make this year's and future years' celebrations one of joy for all. 

Leaving campus: 

If you have any food left, please donate it to Coventry Foodbank via the drop off point in Rootes Grocery Store. If you are moving out of halls and not returning this academic year, please donate your items to flatmates and/or the British Heart Foundation via the red containers by halls of residence. If you can, please travel home sustainably, e.g. opting for trains or coaches rather than driving.  

New Years: 

You could make a sustainable New Years resolution for 2024, such as using more sustainable forms of transport, eating less meat and dairy products or venturing out for more walks to engage with nature.  You could also go vegan for the month of January to take part in VeganuaryLink opens in a new window. 

You can follow us on @warwickunisust to see our Sustainable Christmas Tips series for more information and ideas on how you can be sustainable this Christmas.  

Kind regards, 

The Energy and Sustainability Team
