The University of Bologna’s Plastop project started in 2018 with the aim to progressively reduce the use of plastic on the University’s premises. It comprises a variety of initiatives, including encouraging the use of reusable bottles instead of disposable plastic bottles, both at the University and during everyday life in the University community, the installation of water coolers and alternative solutions to plastic cups in vending machines.
