Less Disposable Plastic at the UvA
Published on 04-01-2024
Since September, we have discontinued the use of disposable cups at all UvA locations, encouraging staff and students to use their own reusable cups. This change has been well-received by both staff and students. In the first three months alone, we have saved 870,000 disposable cups at UvA from ending up in the landfill. In 2024 some disposable packaging in the restaurants will also be phased out.
