Sunway goes Styro-free from October 4

The Sunway University College Student Council recently waged a war on Styrofoam by launching their Scrap-the-Styro Campaign on campus. Student Council President, Joyce Wong said “Styrofoam is hazardous not only to the environment, but also to the health of mankind. It is the white weapon of mass destruction (WMD). By going styro-free in its cafeteria and campus, Sunway University College is setting an example for the rest of the IPTS that higher institutions can also play their part in making the world a better place”. Before the launch, the council organised a survey to find out the views from students and staff and as it turned out 96% of the respondents were in favour of having a Styrofoam-free campus.
