Bags of life

Filed under: Latest news — Heather Leathley @ 11:47 am

Cotton tote bags discovered during a summer tidy up on the Southend Campus are getting a new lease of life.

More than 100 bags, promoting previous University of Essex marketing campaigns, are being distributed around the kitchens in University Square by Accommodation Essex as they prepare for the new arrivals.

A suitable Green Impact message attached to each bag encourages students to use them when going shopping, instead of plastic bags, and to look out for other environmentally friendly ideas around the University.

Campus Manager Zoe Manning said: “CER kindly gave approval for the bags to be used as part of this Green impact promotion. We’re looking forward to seeing the bags out and about around the shops of Southend and to seeing a few less plastic shopping bags!”
