“Green by Default” – sustainable initiatives in the Design department

I think you will all agree that making the Design department at Goldsmiths greener is a worthy cause, and to this purpose began “Green by Default”, an initiative that promotes sustainable ideas on campus with a focus on Design, but collaborating with the Goldsmiths-wide Greening program (read our blog post on Greening Goldsmiths here).

Recently, Green by Default organised a planting workshop in the department, where undergraduate and postgraduate students worked hard to make 80 pots from recycled water bottles and seed them with flowers and vegetables (you can see more photos from the workshop here).
