Sustainability launches useful resources that promote interesting insects and University campaigns

Pictured is the Sustainability Food Waste poster. One of the nine Sustainability Posters.

The Sustainability team has launched a series of posters and flyers that aim to shine a light on undervalued creatures with considerable ecological importance and promote a number of University initiatives. 

Staff, students and members of the community are encouraged to share the ‘Sustainability Posters’ and ‘Support a Species’ flyers as they see fit to inspire others to be more environmentally-friendly and conscious of their individual impact on the planet.

The six Support a Species flyers highlight the significance of bats, bees, butterflies, hoverflies, wasps and wildflowers.

The double-sided flyers contain information on how each species helps the environment and the threats they face.

They also provide tips on how to spot the flora and fauna when out-and-about and explain what can be done at home to support their wellbeing.

The nine Sustainability Posters each focus on campaigns and activities taking place on campus that aim to benefit the environment.

From food waste to transport, to Fruit Routes and the Loughborough Cup,  the vibrant posters cover a variety of topics. 

Environmental Manager Nik Hunt commented: “We are always looking for ways to communicate what we are doing with our wider audience and these posters, which are all based on campaigns and activities which we have been undertaking, provide an opportunity to share these activities. 

“They offer the opportunity for everyone to get involved in key areas and helps us demonstrate wider communication as part of our ISO 14001 2015 accreditation.”

The Sustainability Posters and the Support a Species flyers can be downloaded as PDFs via the Sustainability webpage.
