RUDN has collected 39 tons of waste paper

In 18 months, RUDN, the “greenest” university in Russia (according to the international rating UIGreenMetric) has collected 39 tons of waste paper preserving 652 trees, and this is a hectare of forest.

A ton of recycled waste paper saves up to 16 trees, 27 liters of water and 680 liters of oil, and prevents the emission of up to 1 ton of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

Over the same 18 months, 550 perennial shrubs, 50 perennial and 40 thousand annual flowers were planted on the university grounds as well as in 20 educational buildings and 14 dormitories of the RUDN University
