sTUUdent op shop at Newnham! Gabrielle Stannus, Sustainability Projects Officer I am constantly inspired by the efforts of UTAS students to come up with innovative solutions to tackle local sustainability problems. For example, what to do with those household items that students moving out of on-campus accommodation no longer need? And those moving onto campus or nearby accommodation might want? Eliza Kimlin, Tasmania University Union (TUU) Environment Officer, came up with the idea of starting the sTUUdent op shop on the Newnham campus. Fresh from a week-long trip out at sea on the Bluefin, Eliza, a third-year Marine Environment student, is busy juggling studies, TUU commitments and this initiative. Each Friday during semester, Eliza opens up the op shop from 10am to 12pm on the third level of the TUU building at Newnham. Students are welcome to browse and take from a wide range of goods, including kitchenware, living ware, linen or blankets. All that is asked in return is a gold coin donation ($1 or $2). Donations needed Supply is not quite keeping up with demand. “We desperately need donations”, said Eliza, “We are getting a lot of demand for bedding, pots and pans, and kitchen knives”. If you can donate goods in good condition, please drop them off at the op shop or the TUU Office, Level 3, TUU Building, Newnham campus (NH AW22 L03). More info? Would you like to know more?
