Sometimes living sustainably can be associated with a higher cost. However, through resources at the University and in Charlottesville, sustainable choices are more accessible than first thought. Students should not have to choose between being environmentally conscious or being financially secure. This list of resources is meant to lead students to budget-friendly sustainable living options.

A student donating gently used items to a Goodwill donation box on Grounds for Hoos ReUse.
UVA’s Hoos ReUse program provides students an opportunity to donate gently-used or unwanted items to various community organizations in hopes of minimizing the amount of waste sent to the landfill. Hoos Reuse will still take place this year but will look differently given the ongoing COVID-19 situation. While waste minimization is certainly important, the health and safety of our community takes top priority during this year’s campaign. If you choose to donate, please be sure to practice social distancing and review best practices listed by the Center for Disease Control.
