We want to develop a campaign around the reuse of lab equipment to free up space, reduce waste, extend lab budgets and to help labs be more sustainable.
We thought it would be sensible to ask those who work with lab equipment and supplies, to vote on the design, tone and feel of the campaign, before we go ahead and get the campaign materials produced.
If you are a sustainability, procurement or lab manager and you want to share this with your staff we have written a template email below.
The winning design will be used as a basis for a campaign which will feature an array of designs for posters, banners, screensavers, email signatures, social media cards- you know the type of thing!
The campaign materials will be used by our customers (and others for free) to encourage redistribution of surplus lab kit and supplies. This is part of a wider surplus asset reuse program of course.
End users will be able to add their own logo/ remove ours and add their own local instructions.
Will you help us pick the winning theme?
Let us know what you think of each design. The tone, the impact and general feel.
If you are a sustainability, procurement or lab manager and you want to share this with your staff you could copy and paste the following content and send it to your network.
Re Surplus asset lab equipment reuse.
We are interested in developing a lab reuse campaign to help free up space, make budgets go further and be more sustainable. Your staff (and students) might be interested to take part in the vote on which campaign tone we might adopt for our campaign. It is important to get your input so the campaign is right for you and our labs. See all the designs, vote and comment here.
This is out first foray into supporting green labs and sustainable labs and there will be more to follow!
