Reducing waste and our contribution to landfill

Return to better quality canvas giveaway bags

The red bags the University gave away during Welcome Week/O-Week and Open Days used to be made of sturdy canvas, and are now flimsy and feel quite plastic-y. I get that it would be significantly cheaper to go down this path, but these new bags deteriorate and break within weeks or months (this is the feedback from students). If we're supposed to be a sustainable organisation, why is our first point of contact with many of our future students a cheap and wasteful gift?
