Create a sustainable future
Find out what sustainability really means. It is more than being ‘green’? Hear Casey talk about her experiences as a student attempting to persuade the university to ban water bottles.
Casey is a Bachelor of Business graduate from La Trobe University, and a casual staff member in the Environmental Operations Department. She is currently working on reducing consumption of plastic water bottles and disposable coffee cups, by encouraging the university community to bring along their own sustainable, reusable bottles and coffee cups.
In 2011, she coordinated the student-run ‘Ban the Bottle’ campaign, which aimed to raise awareness about the effects of bottled water and the lack of free, filtered drinking water on campus.
