Sustainable Snaps @ UOW
Part of the 350 International Day of Climate Action
350.org is an international campaign dedicated to creating an equitable global climate treaty that lowers carbon dioxide below 350 parts per million.
What does this 350 number mean?
350 is the number that leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide—measured in "Parts Per Million" in our atmosphere. 350 PPM—it's the number humanity needs to get back to as soon as possible to avoid runaway climate change.
Congratulations to those who participated in the Sustainable Snaps Competition
The winners receive the new silver brown and aqua coloured Keep Cups.
