Sustainability Office has free supplies
As you plan for next year or write up your syllabi, don’t forget about the Sustainability Office’s Reused store. There are hundreds of binders, a lot of folders, and a smattering of other school supplies. Encourage your students to save their money and pick these up for free. We also have many desk organizers and other office supplies, so please check before ordering new. Due to an overabundance of binders and folders, employees are welcome to stop in to check these items off their children’s school supply list. During the summer, the Sustainability Office is open most Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Fall days will most likely be Tuesday through Thursday. When in doubt, just stroll on over and get some steps in!
