How To Have An (Environmentally!) Responsible Raisin

Raisin Weekend is one of the many weird and wonderful traditions that makes St Andrews such a unique and special place to study – not only that, but it’s also loads of fun!

In celebration of the event, and in light of the fact that all Raisin receipts require disposal after they are no longer needed, we’ve developed the following guidelines for constructing environmentally friendly and safe Raisin receipts and costumes to keep Raisin a truly sustainable tradition.

As a thank you for following these guidelines we will be giving away a meal for the entire family at the Doll’s House Restaurant for the most environmentally friendly and creative Raisin receipt and costume. Join the Facebook event here!
.

How do I enter the competition?

Post a picture of your academic family with your receipt & costume on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/EnvironmentStA, or via email at environment@st-andrews.ac.uk. Include a brief description of how it was made and why it is environmentally friendly. We look forward to seeing your creative ideas!

.

How do I design a “green” Raisin costume/receipt?

Use your imagination! The best materials are things that can be recycled e.g. cardboard, wood, plastics, and fabric. Ask around the shops in town to see if they have any cardboard boxes you could use for your costumes/receipts, or have a look in the local charity shops for clothes and accessories for your costumes. Pinterest is a great source of inspiration!

good raisin receiptThe Mystery Machine! An example of a good raisin receipt – creative, fun, easily recyclable, and folds up flat so it doesn’t take up much room in the cardboard skip.

Remember, the tradition is based on raisins, which are not big! Keep your receipts to a reasonable size in order to reduce the amount of items taking up space in landfill.

Additional advice

– October in Scotland can be very cold and wet – please make sure you dress your academic children appropriately!

– Raisin parties often result in a large amount of glass bottles…make sure to recycle these bottles at your nearest glass recycling point.

– Please be aware that due to logistical reasons, you will be required to remove parts of your costume that are not integral before you enter the quad so anything that you are carrying (apart from your shaving foam) including, but not limited to, cardboard, hats, props, and very bulky or pointy items will be removed and recycled. Therefore, please be aware that Estates are unable to keep or return items.

– If you arrive with a receipt that the University cannot dispose of (e.g. electrical goods, livestock, foam filled furniture, or excessively large items) we’re afraid you’ll be turned away at the Quad, miss the foam fight, and will be charged for the cost of disposal of the item.

.

That’s the serious stuff out the way – just stick to the rules and you’ll be guaranteed to have a great time! Have fun, look after yourselves (and each other), and don’t forget to submit your photos after the big day – we’ll be accepting entries until 27th October.

Bike sales, repairs, and security marking – oh my!

Thanks to all those who came along on Friday to our annual Freshers’ Bike Sale hosted by the Environment Team and Bikeworks Fife. Hopefully everyone was able to go away from the sale with something – if not a new bike, then some safety advice, free reflective armbands, or a new set of lights or lock.

Bike Sales

We know that unfortunately not everyone was able to get a bike on the day, so to those who are still looking to purchase an affordable bicycle for getting around town, I’ve compiled some links that hopefully will be of some help:

  • Bikeworks: Call to arrange a visit to purchase a bike directly from their workshop in Glenrothes. A very friendly team who will build the bike to your specifications, pick you up from Glenrothes bus station, and will deliver your bike to St Andrews once built.
  • Skillshare Dundee: Call to ask for availability and/or bike maintenance sessions in Dundee.
  • The Bike Station: Call to check next date of bike sales at their workshop in Edinburgh.
  • Please note that while the above 3 options are not located in St Andrews, it is possible to transport a bike back to St Andrews on the train.
  • As always, there are also new bikes available for purchase at Spokes on South Street.
  • And finally, a great place to look for one-off sales is through the St Andrews Flea Market Facebook page and website.

Bike Repairs

983954_2417545360047_15637491_n

Please email ke68@st-andrews.ac.uk for more information.

Fairtrade Fortnight is here! (and much more)…

Aside

FT fortnight 2014

Looking back to last Friday (when I started drafting this post), WOW I can’t believe how busy things were around here… among other things my desk was covered by,

banana costumes,

Fairtrade wine,

posters, leaflets and green t-shirts…

But I can’t help but feel its just the beginning of things to come. That’s because today begins Fairtrade Fortnight, the two weeks of the year dedicated to all this Fairtrade!

www.st-andrews.ac.uk/fairtrade/

The second week of Fairtrade Fortnight also happens to be Elections week (a great chance to stand for Environment & Ethics rep), and following that mayhem, we’ll be winding up the following week with Green Week celebrations before holidays begin!

With dozens of events planned and countless hours preparing all year (it always seems to come faster than expected) we are set to have a fantastic time with loads of great events. I’ve put together a cheat sheet for those who don’t want to miss out on anything but hate having to run the gauntlet to the library with all the flier-handing-out.

FT wine & grapes graphic

Best small event

A free Fairtrade wine tasting on Thursday 27th Feb. Spaces limited so make sure to book your e-ticket at www.st-andrews.ac.uk/fairtrade/.

Best for your CV

While I encourage you all to run for Environment & Ethics Rep for the Students Association, don’t miss out on these two great internships offered here with the Environment Team which will be closing applications on Friday 28th. For application details visit:

Best for the environment

Ever wanted to plant a tree (or two)? Well your chance is coming up. Two tree planting events will be held during Greenweek, so keep an eye out while the dates are being confirmed.

http://standrewsgreenweek.com/whatson/

Best talk

Join us on March 1st as we listen to the experiences of Fairtrade producer, Fatima Ismael, discuss her experiences as manager of a Nicaraguan Fairtrade coffee cooperative. A great chance to touch up on your Spanish as she will be speaking in her native tongue with a translator.

www.facebook.com/events/593630364058567/

Best exercise

Cycletricity is back again! Watch the sports clubs compete to see who can generate the most bike-powered energy in this day-long event held in the centre of town in Church Square.

Most fun

What better way to begin Green Week than with a ceilidh! Get your green on!

Green Week Round Up

Green Week is over for another semester but it was a fantastic week with lots of different student groups pulling together to put on some fab events and to spread the environmental message.

There was something for everyone; from film screenings and open forums hosted by Greenpeace and Transition to bread making workshops and debates from One World Soceity and the St Andrews Model UN, and from grow your own workshops and animal welfare stalls by Transition and AW Society to veg box schemes and much more!

Here at the Environment Team we hosted a successful Fairtrade bake sale.

Image

The bake sale raised £90 for the Fairtrade Foundation and generated awareness across the student body. We also invited Fife Diet to bring their smoothie bike along and spent a lovely afternoon outside the Union in the sunshine making delicious smoothies from local fruit by pedal power!

Image

Green Week culminated in a fab conference event called Reclaim Energy and hosted by One World Society and People and Planet with guest speakers from many different organisations.

Lauren King tells us more…

Reclaim Energy! Day bought together passionate campaigners from across the UK, some from as far as Oxford and Brighton, to share ideas and motivation about campaigning on climate change in St Andrews Students Association this Sunday. The issues of Arctic drilling, Tar Sands and Fracking may seem a bit of a random focus for an event – but it is clear these unconventional fuels are the new challenge to environmentalists – releasing huge amounts of carbon and gases into the atmosphere, damaging the local environment and impacting communities – not just locally but globally.

The day began with a powerful plenary but Villo Lelkes on ‘Ecocide’ – large scale environmental destruction that campaigners hope to make the fifth law against peace. Philippa de Boissiere and Louise Hazan from People and Planet network, the largest student campaigning network in the Uk, introduced the problem of unconventional fuels. There were five workshops throughout the day – The Arctic Oil Ruch & Scotland hosted by Paul Daly from Friends of the Earth Scotland and Greenpeace St Andrews; Taking on the Tar Sands by Ruthi Brandt from UK Tar Sands Network; Challenging Fracking in Scotland; Taking action against New Coal by Coal Action Scotland; Tar Sands Free Europe by People and Planet climate campaign coordinators.

“I decided to organise this event because I feel there needs to be more communication between the different campaigning groups working on unconventional fuels and climate change issues. There are lots of us, but we can sometimes get caught up in our own campaigns that we forget the bigger picture – we forget that damaging resource extraction is happening all over the world, and even more locally than we may imagine” says Lauren King, an organiser of the day’s event, who has been working on an anti Tar Sands campaign nationally. The day ended with an open space, in which anyone could bring ideas and set up a discussion group. People were able to move freely between different topics. Issues that were covered including: coal bed methane in Scotland, starting an unconventional fuels group in St Andrews, green economy and the ecocide campaign, among others. Organisers hope that these discussions will continue and evolve throughout the year, ready for the People and Planet unconventional fuels campaign to take off in 2013.

“It was inspiring to meet young activists from across Scotland” said Philippa de Boissiere, people and planet tar sands campaign coordinator, “and to explore the potential for action in the face of increasingly extreme forms of energy extraction. From Canadian Tar Sands and the arctic to local coal bed methane projects, the event provided the space to engage with complex underlying issues and consequences. It was great to strategize with young people in this way”. Photos from the event here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ricjl/8067626730/

Thanks to everyone who organised events and to Nate Ruby (E and E officer) and David Bowers for coordinating.

Stay tuned for Green Week 2013 🙂
