Resources / Get Involved
There are a myriad of ways for you to get involved in sustainability activities, events and initiatives at Trinity – not just on campus but also at St. James’ Hospital Research Area, Trinity Hall, D’Olier Street and all of Trinity’s locations.
To get started, download one of our Sustainability Guides, and keep it on your desktop/laptop as a handy reference to know:
- where and how to recycle almost everything
- how to get around Dublin and Ireland using public transport or other forms of environmentally preferable travel (car-sharing, cycling, etc.)
- ways to minimise your energy consumption in any building
- handy ideas for conservation of resources (food, paper, and any item you or Trinity have to spend money on)
If something is wasted it is not only a waste of money, it is also a waste of environmental footprint. It takes a piece of nature to make everything that we see, use and purchase. All our raw materials for every ‘thing’ that is made on this planet comes from nature, so more you buy carefully and consume minimally, the more of nature there is for us to enjoy.
