Warp It and avoid waste!

Online reuse set to save universities £1 million in 2017

Posted by Hannah Vickers | January 18, 2017 | Sustainability

An online scheme that has already helped save customers £8m by sharing resources such as furniture and other equipment, has set itself a challenging target to save university clients £1m this year. The majority of universities use the system to reduce procurement and waste charges as well as avoiding carbon and waste.

Daniel O’Connor, Founder of Warp It, launched the system while working as Waste Manager at the University of Newcastle. He said: “Maximising existing assets is paramount, and that is where we come in. We make it easy for staff to swap surplus assets, either between departments or from one university to another. The University of Glasgow and University of Salford, for example, are saving over £8,000 and £5,000 per month respectively on a £300 per month investment.”
