Stop giving out plastic straws at tower bar, the swan and other uni facilities

Straws have an extremely detrimental effect on the environment and take a long time to break down - they are damaging to the environment and to animals, being situated near to the brayford pool makes it even more of importance to reduce straw useage as they may get into the water there and hurt the animals.

- Only give straws when asked for.
- Offer reuseable metal straws with a deposit that is returned when they are brought back
- Put up a sign/poster to raise awareness of this

I think this is a great suggestion and also think that we should introduce paper straws as well, they break out really easily so any that do end up in the environment don't take ages to break down. Brill Idea!

Definitely! Plastic cups, straws, leaflets etc. should be reduced where possible on campus.
