The team at Lulworth Student Company is conscious of environmental issues and we always encourage our students to go green as well. This is why we have compiled some useful information below on navigating your student experience while reducing your carbon footprint.
LSC is committed playing its part in making life a little bit greener. We believe everyone has the power to impact the environment we live in positively. We are encouraging and supporting ideas and help to implement green living improvements. You will find on our social media site and blog regular updates and information on events and campaigns we are running and how you can get yourself or your flat involved in our “Green Projects”.
This sustainable approach extends to travel as well as proper waste disposal. Please take some time to look through the information below and see if you can apply it to your own experience. Should you have any questions about our Go Green project, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us and ask!

Bournemouth and Poole Councils have partnered with the operator Beryl Bikes to launch an innovative bicycle sharing scheme launching in the spring of 2019. The bikes will be available for instant hire using an app, which tracks the bike’s GPS location to allow users to easily unlock any Beryl bicycle.
An initial 50 brand new bicycles will be distributed at key destinations upon the scheme’s launch. These destinations include easily accessible rail and bus stations, shopping areas in town, and popular tourist attractions.
The initial rollout of bicycles is expected to increase to around 1,000 by the end of the summer months. The Beryl bikes come with three speed gears and a step through design, with seats available for riders ranging from 4’11” to 6’5” in height.
One of the best ways to be sustainable is by recycling. You will find hundreds of bins across the University campus, so you will be able to recycle plastic sandwich packets, juice cartons, foil, yoghurt pots and more.
You will find separate bins for white paper recycling in computer labs, offices, and open access centres. All of the bins will be clearly labelled for efficiency and ease of use. Food waste is now sent to a local composting site in an attempt to be greener.
If you’re on Talbot or Lansdowne Campus, you can recycle all of your batteries in any of the SUBU shops. When you pay a visit to the Student Union reception area, you will also be able to recycle CDs, mobile phones, ink cartridges, glasses, sunglasses, and more!
