Recycle meat trayA Swansea researcher has invented a new type of plastic packaging for raw meat which avoids the need for non-recyclable pads inside the trays to soak up the juices, meaning the whole of the packaging tray can now be recycled.

The new packaging is already in use in mainstream UK retailers, helping to increase recyclability of more than 800,000 tonnes per year of food plastic packaging generated by UK supermarkets.

Chocolate recycle As Wales’ recycling rate reaches an all-time high, we’re calling on our students to keep up their ‘mighty’ efforts when it comes to recycling this Christmas.

With 94% of us recycling regularly, Wales is a nation of Mighty Recyclers. We’re the world’s third best recycling nation, and we’re backing Wales Recycles’ Mighty Mission to get to number one.

The latest data reveals we’re one step closer to reaching the top spot with Wales’ overall recycling rate increasing to 65.4%. This means we’re currently recycling just over 65% of our overall waste, exceeding Welsh Government’s ‘Beyond Recycling’ strategy target of 64% for this year.

A survey compiled earlier this year revealed that over 8 in 10 Welsh citizens now see recycling as the ‘right’ thing to do, with 7 in 10 recycling to do their bit for the environment. More of us than ever see recycling as part of our day-to-day routine. Interestingly there has also been a big jump in the number of us citing environmental concerns as our key motivator to recycle. This is fantastic, but with almost half of us still not recycling everything we can, there is more we can do to ensure that our recyclable items are put out with our recycling kerbside collections every week.

If we’re to help Wales get from third in the world to first, and continue protecting our precious resources, we all need to ramp up our efforts this festive period.

Christmas is traditionally the time of year we create the most waste at home. From all the extra food we buy to the mountain of packaging from Christmas gift purchases, it’s a great opportunity to make sure we’re recycling everything we possibly can.

That’s why we’re supporting Wales Recycles’ Be Mighty. Recycle. campaign, funded by Welsh Government, to encourage everyone in Wales to be Mighty Recyclers this Christmas. (more…)

I am delighted to share with you that Swansea University has once again been ranked within the top ten universities in the UK in The People and Planet University League 2021, published by The Guardian this week.

The League awards degree-style classifications to UK universities based on their environmental and ethical management and performance and this year, our University has again been judged a first-class institution.

Despite the challenges of the past twelve months, I am incredibly proud that we have been able to retain our top ten position within the League. This has only been possible thanks to the fantastic efforts of colleagues from across our University, as well as the commitment and enthusiasm of our students. (more…)
