The BEST (Building Environmental Sustainability Together) awards celebrate the Best of Sustainability at the Loughborough. The awards were open to Staff, Students, suppliers and members of the public, whilst the awards ceremony took place on the 30th April 2012.
Bill Mo was a main contender for the coveted ‘BEST Hall’ award after performing well in the Halls Ethics & Environment League table.
Throughout the year we have held environmental themed socials to raise awareness of sustainable living & recycling, held litter picks around the hall & did numerous switch off nights to save energy!
We also appointed 10 environmental champions whose work in promoting sustainability around hall also helped Bill Mo push ourselves up the league table!
Following a networking session focused on sustainable food, we had a sustainable sourced dinner served on plates made from banana leaves and wine from cups made of corn starch! Then came the awards where we came 2nd!!!
Congratulations to all those who helped Bill Mo become such a sustainable hall! But remember that next year we can only do better…why not even improve sustainability day to day? Turn off those lights, heaters & unneeded electrical appliances, buy cage free eggs and recycle loads!
