SHRUB in a nutshell

Since 2008 students passionate about sustainability (from Edinburgh People & Planet society, in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh Accommodation Services) have been organizing an annual event at the University of Edinburgh, the “Freshers’ Freeshop”. Unwanted items left by students moving out of university accommodation were collected, sorted and stored over summer, and then re-distributed at the beginning of the new academic year to new students, saving them money and reducing waste.
