The Students Swap Stuff project at KU Leuven, supported by the Brussels environmental agency, aims to counteract overconsumption and waste from students who often buy cheap essentials when they arrive for their students, especially international students. The aim is to provide a practical solution to this problem and ensure that as many of these items as possible do not end up in the waste cycle. Existing students, staff and the public can drop off gently used appliances, kitchen essentials, bedding, etc. In September, students can “buy” the fairly priced Student Swap Stuff card and can use this card to rent a number of second hand items which can be chosen from the Swap Stuff Pop up store set up in a shipping container parked just outside campus. The store also hosts a number of events to help students learn more about recycling, reusing and repairing.
