UCL pushed into the £500K club in style, off the back of August generating the highest savings in a single month of all time - a record £32,632 saved. UCL began using Warpit back in 2012, and usage and savings have risen year on year, as the below graph shows savings (£ Y axis) trends:


Helping the environment

This reuse has also meant UCL has avoided over 51 Tonnes of waste, and saved 300 Tonnes of CO2 emissions – which is equivalent of planting 400+ trees.

Warpit is free for all UCL staff to sign up and list and claim items. A whole range of items can be listed, so why not see if it can save you time and money disposing or buying new. The most popular items claimed are:
