Bulk Orders

How do bulk orders of Green Trashing products work?

1. Fill in and submit the order form below.

2. You will receive an email requesting payment.  Make payment and send a screenshot proof of payment to studentengagement@oxfordsu.ox.ac.uk. Once we receive this, we will process your order and send the profits to the Marine Conservation Society.

3. Your products will be delivered directly to your College and that's the process complete! You're ready to help your College to have a brilliant Green Trashing!

 

How much of each product should you order?

Biodegradable Confetti - 1 bag is enough for 10 people

Holipowder - 1 bag is more than sufficient to trash one person. In fact you could be economical about it and only use half and use the other half to trash another friend. Holi powder is sold in packs of 14 bags

Biodegradable Glitter - 1 x 100g bag is enough for 14 people, or 1 x pre-packaged tin for one person. The bags should be bought with the empty aluminium tins and you will need to share the glitter out. Alternatively, you could buy the glitter in pre-packaged tins but this works out much more expensive. (£2.64 v £6 per person)

You can also buy little paper bags which are good for separating the confetti into.

 

When can you expect to receive your delivery?

If the order is placed and payment received by Wednesday 4pm of any week you can expect the orders to arrive by the following Wednesday.

 

Marine Conservation Society

The Marine Conservation Society does fantastic work in trying to reduce plastic waste and in particular reduce plastic waste from escaping into our oceans. They do this by funding reports in to the effects of plastic on our wildlife and then using this to help change policy and provide recommendations to the government. They also hold public campaigns to raise awareness for what we as individuals can do to reduce our plastic waste. Plastic poses a serious threat to wildlife which can get entangled in it and can kill them. Microplastics can be consumed by organisms and work its way up the food chain, with the potential to disrupt hormones and vital internal workings of the organism. So please donate to this amazing charity to support their work and enable your Common room to make a positive environmental difference!
