In the election season this year I noticed an extremely large quantity of paper waste and I found it really unacceptable, Middlesex promotes themselves as a "green university" and some of the candidates were promoting sustainable initiatives but it seemed very hypocritical. Especially when voting was conducted online anyway. I think in future there are better options, perhaps having one sign to approach people with rather than the paper that most likely was thrown in the bin and not recycled, or even conducts the campaigning online exclusively. We are in such an online community to begin with so why not take advantage of that.
