Think:Green is a student-led-service that enables YOU to realise a project that YOU are passionate about. We want to give you a platform to work on your ideas and we will help you (together with different people from around the university and the SU) to achieve your goals. Our aim is to get university students engaged in the issues surrounding sustainability and the environment, whilst reducing the University's environmental impact in the process! Our current long-term schemes include:
Keele Food Coop
An entirely student-run food coop that distributes organic Veg & FruitBags and soon to be holding a weekly stall at the Farmers' Market (https://keelesu.com/vegbox/).
A group of students dedicated to reduce waste by re-using everything and anything, at the moment mostly clothes + kitchen equipment!
Being self-sufficient sure is a dream of many of us. Growing food is a vital aspect of this, practice this skill at our weekly gardening sessions at the Walled Garden, Fri 1-2pm.
Wanna find out more about plant-based eating? Regular communal meals are a great way of getting to know other veggies and improve your cooking skills.
There are also biweekly meetings this semester to catch up with what has happened and what is going to happen. They take place on Thursdays 6-7pm in the SU's MARS room. We also hold regular socials, a lot of which are in collaboration with the University's 'Student Sustainability Bungalow' project. Remember, you don't need to study a "green" degree to care about the environment! Just come along and see how you can get involved!
