Shower Timers

Greenspace have provided Colleges with 4 minute shower timers to encourage students to save water by taking shorter showers.

The idea for this initiative came from Josephine Butler College. They originally trialled the shower timers and had very positive feedback - I hope you do too!

Free Drinking Water

The University provides free drinking water across all nine of it's public cafes, this forms part of the nationwide 'Refill' campaign which Durham University joined in the spring of 2018. This campaign aims to reduce the proliferation of single-use plastic bottles by encouraging users to instead bring reusable bottles and refill them for free at a publicly accessible site.

Water Awareness

We run an annual Water Awareness Week that aims to highlight and eliminate water wastage.
