Project Title: Improvement for Free Store
Project Abstract:

The Free Store is an existing project which is run by the Eco-Rep program on campus. It collects donated or unused things, and stores them in the Withey basement where everybody can come from 8am to 5pm every day to take things they need for free. This project aims to improve the current Free Store, to promote small, locally-owned businesses, and to create a new way of consumption: “Buy Less, Share More.” According to many scholars and economists, small, locally-owned firms benefit the local economy, and provide an effective corporate social responsibility (CSR). They also contribute in building a friendly community, with people sharing and exchanging things with each other while reducing waste.
