Back to the Hankies
To provide UBC students with an alternative to paper towels, Back to the Hankies sells handkerchiefs at cost in the SUB each month. The handkerchiefs are organic cotton, produced on Vancouver Island by Hankettes, a Canadian business dedicated to providing sustainable alternatives to paper product consumption.
Interested in getting involved with the SEC but want to work on a project that’s already up and running? We are always looking for volunteers to help run the booth and organize events for the campaign!
