Bespoke Recycling Bags Encourage Students to Recycle

Bespoke Recycling Bags Encourage Students to Recycle

University of Birmingham’s Student Accommodation have a campaign to improve sustainable awareness and recycling with its students. Smartbags.co.uk has helped them create a bespoke Recycling Bag which they handed out to students for use in their halls of residence.

The clever integration of social media into something physical to engage and explain is what we love. Facebook and Twitter account details have been clearly printed along with a QR code. Students take more notice of a custom recycling bag like this than a regular bin and a sign printed and pinned to a board telling them how to recycle.

The use of full colour digital printing makes this recycling bag much more than a normal bin /refuse sack. The side panels explain what items can be recycled. One for cans, bottles and glass and the other side for paper, cardboard and magazines.

The bag also features Greg - Green. Reduce. Environment.... Genius!! Greg is the sustainable champion for University of Birmingham's Student Accommodation. You can check him out on Twitter or on Facebook - Who is Greg?


Industry Tips - Bag Your Brand

“Smartbags allowed us to create a product that is unique to our University and fits in with our GREG branding and image. The ability to have the recycling information printed onto the bags themselves is far more efficient and effective than a standard recycling container and lose leaflet which may get lost. They look striking and have been positively received by the students enabling them to recycle more efficiently in their flats”.
