Organisation aims and objectives

The SHRUB Co-op aims to reduce waste by providing a platform for people to engage with sustainability. It is student-led, but anybody can get involved. We run a Swapshop, where people can swap their ‘waste’ things for items swapped in by others, a Freeshop (for members of the co-operative), a beginners Bicycle repair and maintenance workshop, upcycling and upskilling workshops, Social Justice Movie Nights, and host a food-sharing group who tackle food waste.
