Warning and fine system USC
In the coming weeks the USC will start with a warning and fine system. It is important that the space available for sports is used as good as possible for our members. If you are not attending your reservation and if you do not cancel this reservation in time, you will receive a warning the first time. This warning is valid for two months, after which it will expire automatically. If you are not attending a reservation a second time within these two months your account will be blocked for 7 days and you will be fined 2.50 euros.
The ideal veggie meal for students!
Next week marks the start of Leiden University’s annual EL CID introduction week for all of our new students. Thankfully, it’s finally possible again to organise both an amazing online and physical programme for all these new students despite all of the Corona measures
The Future of Fishing for Floating Waste
Last April, the sustainability coordinators of the USC helped clean the canals of Leiden as part of the Plastic Spotter initiative. Every Sunday, the Plastic Spotters use their fleet of canoes to “fish” for floating waste with a team of volunteers. Aside from making sure the canals are waste-free, you also get to experience a different side of Leiden by being able to paddle through the city centre. The ideal activity for a sunny weekend!

Deposit on plastic bottles
Since the first of July, a deposit on small plastic bottles has been introduced! A 15 cent deposit will be charged per bottle (< 1 litre). This measure should lead to much less plastic litter. Every year, about 900 million small plastic bottles are sold, about 100 million of which end up in the environment. It is estimated that 90% of the plastic bottles, both small and large, will be returned with this deposit system.
