Free and Shared Resources

The Office of Sustainability encourages free and shared resources within our communities.  Much of the equipment and supplies we own could be used more efficiently and fully if we loaned it out to other members of our community.  In that light, we have compiled a list of equipment and supplies that our office will share with others.  Please fill out the online form if you would like to borrow any of the items listed below.

  • Blender bike, bike stand and blender equipment (also can be used as a charger bike to demonstrate human-powered cell phone charging)
  • 20 china dinner plates
  • Cutlery sets of fork, knife, spoon, approximately 40 sets
  • Two water coolers, approximately 7 gallons each
  • Four folding tables, approximately 6" by 2.5", 
  • 20 folding chairs

In addition, there are many locations with free, shared and rental resources for University community members.  Please see the list below.
