Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Reuse Hoose

Interested in reuse and repair rather than sending things to landfill? Come and meet local social enterprises, businesses and charities who are helping the University do just that.

The University of Edinburgh work with many partners, social enterprises, charities and businesses to reduce our waste, to make sure that as much of our waste as possible is diverted from landfill, and that items such as books, electrics and office equipment are reused or recycled.

To celebrate this, the Department for Social Responsibility and Sustainability in conjunction with the Waste & Recycling Department are holding the “Reuse Hoose” event in Potterrow Dome to provide staff and students with a chance to learn more about reducing, reusing and recycling and to introduce them to some of the innovative partners we work with and their exciting reuse projects.

Reuse Hoose will give participants the opportunity to learn how to:

Fix their belongings (bike, phone, and computer) Get hold of freebies (food/furniture/clothes) Save money… and the planet

Stallholders include:

Shrub: the first ever student-led Cooperative in the UK

Remade in Edinburgh : a social enterprise that teaches repair skills and campaigns for goods to be built to last

The Grassmarket Community Project: a sustainable social enterprise creating community and providing sanctuary to participants while teaching them new skills
