The media has done a wonderful job of selling us on the attractiveness and benefits of buying "new", "improved", "special", etc. products. However, we already collectively own so much that we could all survive for quite a while on the existing products - if we just reused them a few times!
The Sustainability Office at Memorial has set up an online system for the redistribution of used office furniture on the St. John's campus called the MUN Furniture Finder. Is your department making changes for the new semester? Getting rid of office furniture in good condition? Before declaring it surplus, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 864-3047 to see if it is suitable for redistribution.
Need some furniture for your department? Check the MUN Furniture Finder website to see items that are currently available.
