Eyes on PolyU

Recycling drive comes to PolyU as part of UniRe® Graphic Design Contest

After months of hard work, the UniRe® Graphic Design Contest has come to a fruitful close! The Contest itself was a fun, engaging way to promote recycling and source separation. The organizers, the Campus Sustainability Committee (CSC) and Campus Sustainability Office (CSO), are thrilled with the successful completion of the Contest and the positive response they have received.

A presentation ceremony was held a while ago to award the winners, and a special exhibition was staged to excite the University community with the five winning graphic designs. These winning works demonstrate the entrants’ ability to develop creative, insight-driven designs which stimulate staff and students on campus and promote proper recycling practice. They are now printed and installed on the UniRe® collection bins across the campus.

Drawing awareness to the benefits of waste reduction has always been regarded as an important focus in PolyU’s sustainability development. It can only be achieved through a joint endeavor in careful planning, long-term education, continuous publicity, and investments to introduce appropriate and convenient facilities to encourage recycling. It is about boosting campus moral while also reducing waste at source and driving active recycling. 

Above all, recycling is not meant to be bounded and defined by a statistical measurement. Not only are we saying this is how we do it, rate it, but also, this is why we should. Every time we avoid unnecessary consumption, conserve resources and re-use the things that we recycle, we help the environment, ourselves and our next generations.
