Staying sustainable this festive season

Despite the best intentions across the rest of the year, the festive season – with all its celebrations, decorations, gifts and eating – can have a really significant environmental impact. But never fear! With a little extra thought and forward planning, it’s easy to have a much greener holiday season than a typical celebration would bring. 

From food swaps to shopping smarter, there are loads of options to cut your impact this festive season – and we’ve got plenty of campus activities to help you do so. Take a look below for a whistle-stop tour of all our sustainable seasonal activity, plus some top tips for having a more eco-friendly festive season from our friends over at Giki Zero.

Sustainability is for life, not just for Christmas – if you’ve not already checked out our LUU Acts For Earth campaign, make sure you do. It’s our way to ensure that us and our members are always informed, involved and ever-improving when it comes to the environment, and we’d love for you to get involved.
