Go Green Week was originally organised by People and Planet, a student-led organisation campaigning to end world poverty and improve people’s awareness about the environment.
Now the event has spread to universities throughout the UK including the University of Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian University.
Popularity has increased each year with 2013 set to be the most successful yet when it begins its series of workshops, talks and events on 12 February.
As part of the campaign students are encouraged to make their own carbon pledge to reduce their carbon footprint.
To date, Strathclyde currently have two pledges with a potential CO2 saving of 50kg, based around reducing the amount of plastic they use.
Glasgow Caledonian has led the way with a total of 45 pledges, ranging from cooking only enough food that is needed, to car sharing and buying eco-friendly clothes. Their potential CO2 saving is currently 1,500kg.
Both universities have teamed up with The Gorbals recycling project to offer students free bike repairs and services.
