WARPit re-use scheme delivers savings


Membership of our new WARPit, managed by the Environmental Sustainability team, is proving popular across the University with over 150 people now signed up to use it.

The WARPit site is the place to pass on unwanted items – everything from stationery to lab equipment – and to browse for things your department may need. The site has a tool that calculates the estimated costs and carbon emissions saved with each successful transaction and current savings across the University stand at £4,210 and 1665 tonnes of CO2.

There are currently over 1,200 items online and up for grabs.  Sign up to clear your office of any redundant items or if you’re in the market for something new.

For more information, contact Jennifer Hurst, Environmental Sustainability Projects Manager, on (6) 14893 or at sustainability@admin.ox.ac.uk
