Green Team doing their bit for Green Impact

London Met’s Green Team have been taking part in the inaugural Green Impact scheme at the University.

Date: 15 May 2017

London Met’s Sustainability Team have been bending over backwards to make sure that they are doing their bit for Green Impact.

The Green Team, as they are otherwise known, is made up of Rachel Ward, Zanda Pipira, Paul Ayles, Jim Quinn, and Pamela Rodrigues.

As part of the Green Impact scheme, the Green Team have increased biodiversity by installing lavender on the University’s roof, as well as recycling coffee cups as pots and planting edible plants for students and staff, which has had a great response. Jim is even growing a bean and you can follow its progress on Twitter.

Although they say they have found it slightly challenging to find the time to complete the toolkit, Green Impact acknowledges every achievement and effort, and it always encourages you to keep up the good work.

The Green Team would certainly recommend Green Impact to people who are interested in getting involved next year.

Pamela said, “Apart from reducing your own carbon footprint and helping the university in their sustainability objectives, Green Impact is also a fun way of meeting new people and getting to know your own team better, by organising events together or attending other activities.”
