At UniLodge Victoria University, we are keen to make a difference to the environment by actively making conscious choices within our property to reduce waste, reuse and assist our residents who also wish to make a difference.
Here’s some idea of what we do for you to get green:
Recycling bread tag, bottle cap & batteries
Not only we are saving waste from recycling these items. There are charities that take these recycled items and turn them into prosthetic limbs, raise funds for wheelchairs, etc.
A collaboration with Australian Red Cross which is very popular among our residents. The 3 big donation boxes usually get filled up within 1 month!
Give away recycle bags
Made by recycled plastics, we encourage residents to use these bags and collect their recyclable waste.
We have a hungry bin in our courtyard, living on our food waste and our wriggly friends will produce nutrient-rich fertilizer for our gardens.
Looking ahead, we have a zero-waste laundry liquid station installing in the common laundry. Residents only need to bring their bottles and purchase the liquid, saving plastics and time of a trip to the supermarket. How exciting!
We are also shopping from a list of sustainable companies, which we will continue to focus on and source new opportunities.
