Upcoming Events

Free Store

Do you need new t-shirts? A sweater or winter coat? How about pants? Kitchen supplies?
Come by and check out all that we have to offer at the Free Store. Why are we so great to just give this stuff away? The Environmental Center is committed to working toward a Zero Waste Campus. We will achieve this ultimate goal by supporting ways to REDUCE consumption, REUSE functional items, and RECYCLE (and COMPOST) waste rather than sending it to a landfill. The Free Store is all about promoting the reuse of items so they don't get thrown away, and so you don't have to spend your money on new stuff!

When: Every Thursday from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Where: Student Union lobby (or the SU quad, weather permitting)

To Donate: Please bring your lightly used goods directly to the Free Store, or drop them off with a student employee any time between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm at the Environmental Center. Questions, email Jeanett at jpjansen@fortlewis.edu.
