The University of Chester has joined the WARPit community to save money, carbon and waste.
All staff can sign-up to WARPit: https://www.warp-it.co.uk/uniofchester
WARPit - the resource distribution network, gets the best value out of waste resources that would otherwise have to be disposed of, by finding the right owners for them.
There are more benefits to reuse than is first assumed, however avoiding the purchase of new items is the main area that has been focussed on until now.
In the last 2.5 years of operation, Warp it have also had feedback about many positive benefits such as time savings, donations to charity and other social benefits. They have even had reports that staff and organisations are collaborating and making connections that would not have happened without Warp it. See audio from Ellie from the Institute of Making UCL:
