Reharvest

Reharvest is a local project focused on decreasing food waste in St. Andrews by positively influencing student consumption patterns. We wish to incentivize students to eat their meals at restaurants during the hours before closing or at the end of a service—when the remaining food would end up as waste—by offering it at a discounted price through a fixed-price, meal-card system.

Students will benefit from the reduced prices if they eat at the right times and restaurants will benefit from selling the food that would go to waste as well as the free advertising from our group. Proceeds from the meal cards will go into funding pay-what-you-can meal events for our community parter: North East Fife Community Hub.

As a project in its early stages, we are looking for a variety of skilled and dedicated individuals. Since the project is largely business oriented, we need members who excel in strategy, negotiation, and accounting. We also need members who are passionate about sustainable development and can help maximize the environmental and social benefit of this project. This is a great opportunity to get real-world experience in entrepreneurship and make a genuine impact in our community.

Moda.X

Moda. X is a social project that focuses on the promotion and creation of sustainable fashion by emphasizing collaboration between students and the local community; with the direct collaboration with Ensemble St. Andrews.

This year we plan to create a ‘fashion’ community hub. Through the use of donated clothes from our partner Ensemble and local shops, we aim to create a series of workshops that will foster and bind the town and gown relations here in St. Andrews.

In addition to the workshops series, we aim to educate the harmful effects of fast fashion to the local community of St. Andrews. By promoting on how you can still be stylish and sustainable, we aim to encourage and consult local societies and organisations that work with fashion or clothe textiles on how to run in a sustainable and ethical manner.

Join us if you are interested in fashion, textile upcycling or have any ideas on how to grow this start-up!

 In the city of Kolkatta there is a lack of medicinal provisions to the poor due to the high cost. In the meantime, more affluent residents hold excess unexpired medicine that sit idly in their homes or go to waste but are yet still safe to consume or use. There is a need to bridge the gap between these two scenarios. We at Remeducate aim to create the framework that builds this bridge.  In addition, there is a case of an over-reliance of medicine and some ill individuals’ symptoms are caused by a lack of basic hygiene or lack of basic ‘healthy’ lifestyle. The wastage of medicine also gets dumped into local landfills. Over time, the decomposition produces toxic chemicals which pollutes rivers and damages the local ecosystem. The secondary of Remeducate is to educate and arrange workshops, alongside The Hope Foundation on the topic of health education. This includes, but not all, importance of washing hand, hygiene when cooking, the use of soap and the message of reducing reliance of medicine for minor illness (for example, some believe antibiotics is necessary to treat colds or common flu when a few days rest will do).      If you have an international outlook, interested in medicine or have some experience in project management then we need you!!
