Since implementing the furniture reuse and management system, Warp It, back in January 2016 we’ve hit a huge milestone!
Warp It is designed to make it very easy for staff at the University of Kent to loan or give surplus items to other staff. Furthermore, items that aren’t needed within the University can be passed onto partner organisations and charities. This has helped us to achieve savings in time and money and being smarter with our resources.
So far, we’ve saved:
- 120,157KG waste
- 366,130KG CO2
- donated £49,680 to not for profits organisations
- gained 711 members
So, if you have an item that is taking up space that you don’t need, put it on Warp It. Or if you’re looking for an item check Warp It before you buy new!
What items can be reused through Warp It?
Reusable furniture, fixtures and fittings and office consumables (such as stationary and folders) and much more *, if you’re not sure if your item can be listed please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for advice.
