Be a (Green) Goat, Not a Sheep!

Updated: Sep 21, 2021


In collaboration with the Operations Unit, here is our contribution to the World Cleanup Day: CLEAN UP & GREEN UP week – the first annual CR 'spring' clean week!


The Clean Up Week will consist of 4 different phases:

  1. Lab, Experimental Spaces and Offices Clean-Up. (20th-24th September).

  2. Coastal Clean-Up (25th September)

  3. Flea Market (27th-30th September)

  4. UpCycled Art project (4th October onwards…)





Lab Cleaning

The CCU building is now 10 years old and this is the chance to clear out, free up space for new work and donate things that are no longer needed to other labs via a FLEA MARKET (for more info on the Flea Market, reach out to Anna Hobbiss).

Each lab will receive a Cleaning Pack at the beginning of the week and here are some tip-sheets to help organise:


- Tips for organising your lab cleaning

- Tips for cleaning the Open Lab

- Tips for cleaning Fridges /Freezers

- Guidelines for Equipment Donation / Disposal

- Guidelines for Electronic Waste Disposal

- Guidelines for Chemical Donation / Disposal


There will be prizes for the for the participating labs and a PHOTO COMPETITION for the best 'cleaning' shot, so get snapping! If you have any questions, please contact the Operations Unit or Catarina Pimentel.

Coastal Clean-Up

To conclude the week of cleaning & greening up and to celebrate International Coastal Cleanup Day, the Green Team is organising CCU's very first local coastal clean up! More than 11 million tons of plastic reach the ocean every year, posing a serious threat to all marine life (WWF Stop Plastic Pollution Report 2021). We can all play a part in the solution, so join us & thousands of other organisations around the globe in cleaning up our coasts and seas.

UpCycled Art Project

With the leftovers from the flea market, we invite you to create an out-of-the-box piece of art, to be displayed in the CCU! If you are interested, please contact Margarida Brotas.

And Remember! Be a (Green) Goat, Not a Sheep!
