    RUSU to campaign for environmentally friendly products


      RUSU should pursue options regarding the provision of environmentally friendly toothbrushes at campus outlets, to support improving the carbon footprint of students and ensure RUSU is promoting sustainable behaviour for students.

      A collection of ‘environmentally-friendly’ products should be sold. As someone who uses bamboo toothbrushes, people often look for a lifestyle change and focus on findings alternatives for all sorts – not just a toothbrush. Selling only environmentally friendly toothbrushes could be considered ineffective.
