2016

"There has been a big drive in this area."
Second year trainee, London
"There's a lot of talk about this but I'm not sure what the actual figures are. There are no bins under desks, which forces you to recycle."
Second year trainee, London
"Beehives on the roof. Herb garden in the grounds. Lots of great green stuff."
First year trainee, London
"Bins aren't allowed in your room so you're forced to recycle. We also have our own bee garden."

2013
