Promoting Green Campus, IPB University Environmental Cadre Distributes Free Stainless Straw to New Students


In accordance with the instructions of the Minister of Research, Technology and Higher Education (Menristekdikti) regarding the prohibition on the use of disposable plastic drinking water containers and plastic bags, IPB University Environmental Cadres for the 2019-2020 period held Green Campus socialization to new IPB University students at Dramaga Campus, Bogor ( 30 / 7-2 / 8).

"Our goal is for students of class 56 (new students) who aim to foster a sense of love for the environment from the very beginning into the environment of IPB University. New students at IPB University are required to stay in the dormitory in the first year of study. Meanwhile, currently, the largest source of waste at IPB University is produced by a dormitory environment. Therefore, the Environmental Cadre in collaboration with the Senior Resident Dormitory of the General Competency Education Program (PPKU) focused on this socialization activity to the 56th generation with the aim of creating a clean, comfortable and free of plastic waste hostel environment, "said IPB University Environmental Cadre Coordinator 2019-2020, Othari Gusman.
In this socialization, Environmental Cadres distributed free stainless straws and stickers to students. The shared stickers have three main content, namely waste sorting, saving water, and saving energy. This free distribution of stainless straws and stickers will also be held at the IPB Vocational School on August 9, 2019.

In addition to the distribution of stainless straws and free stickers, the activities of the Environmental Cadre were also filled with expo wall magazines and posters with environmental themes and waste recycled items. This series of activities is expected to foster awareness and enthusiasm for new students in protecting the environment. Not only that, new students are expected to participate in realizing IPB University's Green Campus by implementing a green lifestyle that has been socialized during this activity.

"In the future, there will also be several activities that involve new students in the scope of the dormitory as a form of sustainability of this activity," said the student of the Department of Soil Science and Land Resources.
Environmental Cadre is a work program formed by the Executive Board of Student-Family Students (BEM KM) in the field of Environment IPB University with the aim of becoming a pioneer in maintaining and preserving the environment at IPB University. (AVR)
