Green Impact 


MDXSU is working towards a brighter, greener future.


Middlesex Students' Union is dedicated towards working on promoting and improving sustainability at Middlesex University and in the wider community. 


We have found that often it is little changes that have the biggest impact!


What can I do?


Save yourself some money, reuse cups and bottles

You can buy a reuseable cup from any of the coffee outlets on campus and you'll get a discount on hot drinks everytime that you use it.

There's loads of places on campus where you can refill your water bottle, there's no need to spend a fortune on buying a plastic bottle everyday.

Be an ethical consumers and support Fairtrade

Buying Fairtrade products can make a real difference to producers in developing countries by getting them a guaranteed fair price for their goods which could mean they being able to send their children to school or putting them on the path out of poverty.

Buying Fairtrade products is one of the easiest ways we can show compassion and solidarity towards Third World farmers. It opens our eyes to some of the huge injustices in the world.

Try to buy Fairtrade cotton clothing whenever possible. Find out more about what is Fairtrade and how you can buy Fairtrade merchandise and get involved here.

Did you know that the MDXSU merchandise we sell is entirely fairtrade, with everybody in the supply chain being paid a fair wage for their work? 

Find out more about Fairtrade Food and Fairtrade Clothing options on campus!

Come along to the next Fairtrade event to try some of the goodies on offer and learn more about Fairtrade Foundation.
