CAMPUS SUSTAINABILITY

Good As New is a reuse and waste reduction initiative that encourages all New School students to donate reusable school supplies and materials at the end of each semester so that these items stay out of landfills, and can be used by other students in the future.

Items and materials including wood, metal, plastic, paper, art supplies and tools are collected at drop-off points around campus including building lobbies, the Making Center, and in select classrooms.

Look out for donation bins next week!
