Haverford (RE)uses is a sustainable initiative with the goal of reducing our carbon footprint on campus.
This can be done by diverting waste from landfills and reducing the need for new purchases (and the accompanying packaging). Through the (RE)use initiative students are encouraged to give their unwanted items a new life by donating them to be used by others. Our initiative involves a (RE)use store, as well as, partnerships with Haverford’s food pantry and GreenDrop.
It is governed by the Committee for Environmental Responsibility (CER) and currently staffed by volunteers, student workers, and the Arboretum Program Coordinator. Additional support comes from the President’s Office and the Council for Sustainability and Social Responsibility (CSSR).
