How to Help the Environment: 6 Ways You Can Get Involved

Life as a student can be hectic, but everyone can still make time to give back to Mother Nature and find ways to live a greener lifestyle.

University students have a lot to think about, and things can get stressful for postgraduate students balancing work, family and university life. So the environment is probably the last thing on your mind.

But for those studying the MRes Environmental Management course at the University of Bolton, it’s often front-of-mind. Because this programme looks at engineering from an environmental perspective, seeking solutions to make our plant a cleaner, healthier, more sustainable place.

No matter what subject you specialise in, you can make a difference and reduce your footprint. Here’s how to help the environment during your studies:

1. Walk or cycle to lectures

If you are within walking distance, walking to your classes can be a great alternative to driving or riding public transport. Not only are you saving money on fares and petrol, but you won’t need to pay for a gym membership.

Some scary statistics that will make you want to go car-free:

- Vehicles are the single biggest source of carbon dioxide in the UK (OneHome.org)
- Car fumes are a risk to your health and can irritate the eyes and respiratory tract (HSE)

Between 28,000 and 36,000 deaths a year are caused by air pollution (Public Health England)
