Green. Reduce. Environment.... Genius!! The sustainable champion for University of Birmingham's Stud Hi I'm Greg! Lots!

You could say I'm kinda like the sustainability mascot for your student accommodation here at the University of Birmingham. If anyone of you lovely people are interested in environmental issues, energy, sustainability, carbon trust or making a positive impression on your halls of residence then I'm your man! So, what can a guy like me offer a student like you? There are opportunities to volunteer

In Selly Oak? Watch out for the Junkbusters.

At the end of the year students leave for home and often have 'stuff' that they don't want to take. The University of Birmingham has a great campaign called 'Junkbusters' (see which organises the collection of unwanted goods.

B30 Foodbank works with this campaign to collect any unwanted tins or packets of food that students may otherwise throw away (not last night's left over pizza, obviously!).

Foodbank volunteers will join the students for a couple of hours for the next few Fridays (June 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th 12-2pm at a stall in Bournbrook, Selly Oak and walking round the streets collecting 'stuff', accompanied by the environmentally friendly milk float pick up truck.

If you know a student, or anyone on the move who could donate and save on packing, pass on the message and pop along to say hello.
