It has been Green Week all this week at London Metropolitan University, with many events going on, including visiting our bees (at Holloway Road campus), introduction of coffee cup recycling points and charity pop up stalls amongst many more!
For our part at Aldgate library we have put together a display about plastics, including books on plastic recycling, as well as plastic objects that are considered antiques. Did you know Roland Barthes had written an essay about plastic in the 1950s? You can read it in ‘Mythologies’.
As well as books, the display features items from our Materials & Products Collection, including materials made from recycled plastic or alternatives to plastics. Much more is available in the M&P room on the 3rd floor of Aldgate Library!
