Create a welcoming community in which people can learn new skills (sewing, crochet, making soap etc) that will enable them to reduce the amount of waste they produce, avoid plastic and become more sustainable.
Could include workshops, talks, ‘trips’ to the farmers market in loughborough as well as getting involved in other eco activities.
Perhaps eventually even setting up a pop up ‘bulk shop’ allowing people to avoid plastic in their shopping.
With plastic pollution and our disposable culture creating an environmental crisis, we would help students move away from this type of living in an affordable manner. Often, costs works out the same or cheaper.
