The second UC Furniture Adoption Day in February began with a bang as punters sprinted to, and swarmed over, 12 containers-worth of furniture surplus to university requirements. People often piled their choices into a little furniture castle, and left somebody sitting on top of it to stop others from grabbing it whilst they went to retrieve their transport to cart it away! Most of the furniture was claimed in less than an hour.
This event ticks so many key sustainability boxes for UC. Not only does it re-purpose perfectly useful gear for a community who clearly needs appreciates it, but it also prevents a phenomenal volume of materials being sent to the landfill.
