Sustainability at Keele- Action Plan

We have created this action plan based on feedback from students on sustainability. 

 

AquAid

KeeleSU uses water coolers to supply fresh drinking water to areas within the building that do not have a mains water supply. Since 2009 KeeleSU has used AquAid as a supplier of water coolers because through their charitable donations they are helping the very poorest of people throughout the world to obtain access to clean, disease free drinking water.
