Tia Aprile started this petition to York University

In 2019 YU generated around 100-120 metric tons of waste per month. 

We are a student group york university trying to reduce waste on York's Keele campus. We’re planning to address disposable drinking container waste by starting an initiative that provides reusable bottles to the student body at a low cost.

We also hope to change perspectives on waste culture in the university and create a shift from a throwaway culture to a sustainable reusable one. We want people to question the assumptions and social ideas related to our personal use of throw-away items and to be self-reflexive of the mark they leave on the planet through the things they use and discard.

Our proposal for our reusable bottle initiative is expected to steeply reduce the amount of garbage being created on campus and is completely feasible as it will only cost a few dollars to each student to fund the system. 

Help make York a green campus and sign now!
