Bristol University Sustainability Team (BUST)


WELCOME TO THE BRISTOL UNIVERSITY SUSTAINABILITY TEAM (BUST)

We are a consensus based group of students at Bristol University that facilitates student sustainability projects and local environmental activism.
We believe anthropogenic climate change, peak oil, biodiversity loss and unsustainable consumption undermine a secure and fair future for everyone; and that working in communities is an effective way to create needed change.

We work to support and generate student practical action on sustainability issues within Bristol University and the city community.

PAST PROJECTS

WATER BOTTLE CAMPAIGN

In the UK alone, its estimated that we throw away around 10 billion plastic water bottle each year. Not only that, we also believe its ridiculous that we should pay such high prices for bottled water when we are lucky enough to have perfectly good on tap. So we're running a campaign to encourage you guys to fill up your water bottles instead of buying a new one each day. We hope to be able to provide you with some jazzy water bottles and also install more drinking water points around the university for to use. To get involved or hear some more, just click here
