Augsburg Community Launches On-Campus Lending Shop to Reduce Waste and Promote Reuse

Share this:

Augsburg’s Environmental Stewardship Committee and Campus Cupboard food pantry collaborated in Fall 2019 to pilot a new resource: the Share Shop, which offers a wide variety of items for free, short-term checkout. The Share Shop currently features board games, small appliances, office supplies, sewing kits, sports equipment, tools, and much more. The Share Shop follows the same hours of operation as Augsburg’s Campus Cupboard and is located in the lowest level of Science Hall, adjacent to the university’s longstanding “free table,” where Auggies place items they no longer need and wish to offer to new owners. For Fall 2020, the Campus Cupboard will relocate to the Sabo Center for Democracy and Citizenship in the lower level of Anderson Residence Hall to accommodate new operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Share Shop will remain in Science Hall, and the two student-run initiatives will continue to work together.
