Single Out workshops new Wed 24 Mar 2021   10:00 [Places]

We’ve known for many years that the 'make, use, dispose’ way of life is having a big impact on our environment. Our use of single-use items not only fills up landfills, chokes our rivers and seas, but also contributes to dwindling natural resources. Recent audits of the University of Cambridge’s waste have shown how big the issue of single-use disposable waste is, but there are also many great examples of waste reduction which reinforce just how big of a change we could make if we can better understand the issue of single-use disposables, and find solutions that help to reduce, replace, reuse or recycle the most problematic items.

In these two workshops, we'll be looking in detail at the findings of the recent 'Single out Survey' ( and focusing on finding solutions which eliminate, reduce, replace or recycle those items which add the most to the University’s waste. The workshop is being run jointly by the University Sustainability Team and OurCambridge's 'Simplifying Our Processes' team.

'There are two sessions:'

  • SESSION 1: Wed 24 Mar 2021 10:00-11:30 will focus on non-laboratory/non-research single use items (i.e. items associated with offices, deliveries, catering, cleaning etc).
  • SESSION 2: Thu 25 Mar 2021 10:00-11:30 will focus on laboratory/research-related single use items
