Here at Solent Students’ Union we understand the importance of reducing our impact on the environment, and do as much as we can to help save energy and reduce our carbon footprint.
In this section of the website you can find out about various ‘green’ aspects of the Union, from Fairtrade to advice and information on recycling and getting involved with volunteering.
