Use Your Voice

Five Digital Media and Communication students have teamed up with the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) to launch their new campaign, 21 Days to Change.
The project aims to spread awareness around plastic pollution and plastic waste in universities across London.
You may have seen them around your campus this week doing workshops to promote the challenges launching next week.
For three weeks there will be three challenges to help you cut down on your plastic use:
These small adjustments will not only help students live a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle but will also have a massive positive effect on the environment.
According to the EIA, eight million tonnes of plastic find their way into the ocean every year. Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) have found that 100,000 marine mammals are killed by plastic pollution annually.
So why not take part in the challenges and create a more sustainable lifestyle for yourself and the planet?
