Project in the spotlight: the recycling cabinet

The first step of ‘acting sustainably’ is to start by using what you already have. Bearing this in mind, the team created the ‘recycling cabinet’. We encourage colleagues and students to swap or donate things that they no longer (can) use. To inspire you, we hereby list some possibilities:

  • books & magazines
  • note pads & writing material
  • small electronics like desk lamps or coffee makers
