Studes help in drive vs plastic bags, Styrofoam
by Jane B. Cadalig

The University of Baguio Supreme Student Council (SSC) initiated its own information, education, and communication campaign (IEC) to change the attitude of students on plastic and Styrofoam use.

UB SSC Prime Minister Joshua Bantic said the council focused its campaign on environmental issues to make the youth realize that they have a role to play in addressing societal concerns.

Bantic said one of the concerns about students nowadays is their lack of awareness on issues confronting society. He said the environmental awareness campaign is a step towards making students aware of the issues in their surroundings.

The SSC, with the Student Council representatives of the different year levels, will adopt the room-to-room approach in its environmental awareness campaign, according to Bantic.

“We intend to go to the classrooms and inform the students about the campaign to minimize the use of plastic bags and Styrofoam and for them to instead use recyclable containers. We want to help instill an attitude change among the students,” Bantic said.

He said the drive is in support to the university and the city government’s ban on plastic bags and Styrofoam use.

Last year, UB banned the use of plastic bags and Styrofoam in canteens and stores within the campus every Friday.

Aside from Fridays, UB will ban plastic and Styrofoam use in the campus every Monday and Wednesday this month and every Tuesday and Thursday in April.

Bantic said the SSC will include this in its environmental awareness campaign to make the students aware that UB is going plastic bag and Styrofoam-free the whole week, not just every Friday.

He said the ban, which UB will impose gradually, will make the university fully compliant to Baguio’s Plastic Bag and Styrofoam-free Ordinance, which the city government intends to implement fully in May.
